Particle gun
There are at least 2 ways of running a particle gun out of the box:
- using npsim command line
- using geant macro file and invoke gps
Using npsim (wrapper around ddsim) command line:
.. code:: bash
# Assumed to run from the root of Athena detector repo
# no spread
npsim --compactFile=athena.xml --runType=run -G -N=2 --outputFile=test_gun.root --gun.position "0.0 0.0 1.0*cm" --gun.direction "1.0 0.0 1.0" 100*GeV --part.userParticleHandler=''
# uniform spread inside an angle:
npsim --compactFile=athena.xml --random.seed 1 --enableGun 2*GeV --gun.thetaMin 0*deg --gun.thetaMax 90*deg --gun.distribution uniform --outputFile test.root
Convert to GDML
There is a script in the detector repository
That can be used to export ALL of ATHENA to gdml, but not individual detector systems.
This is actually [done]( on every commit
and the results are saved as job artifacts.

data processing.
