G4TessellatedSolid transportation exceptions


I am simulating geometry which is defined using G4TessellatedSolid (either reading STL with CADMesh or importing GDML file). The problem is (I guess) that the object structure is to fine and Geant gets stuck trying to transport particles through (the error log is below). I have checked, there no overlaps with other volumes.

So my questions are:

  1. Does this problem have significant consequences in my result?
  2. How could it be fixed?

Thank you in advance,

The error log:

The warning may indicate that the tessellated structure has some defects (flipped facets orientation or holes), such that navigation gets stuck for zero step length returned by the solid.

Hi vyeroshe. I met the same problem. Have you solved the problem?

In my situation, the warning comes from the wrong definition of the facets. some of my facets are defined in clockwise while it should be counter-clockwise.
