Hi Pelle,

I agree with your last statement, which is confirmed by the width of the peaks for layer 2, the width in x is smaller than that for y in layer 1, so there is some other process going on.

One thing that may help would be to turn off all multiple scattering in the simulation. I know this possible, just don't know how this is done for SLIC. Perhaps Jeremy or Norman know the trick. That would take one of the variations out of the picture. The other thing you could do is to have a point source beam rather than the spread out beam. If there is a mismatch between the beam source and the expected beam source in the analysis, this could skew the distributions.

Best,
	Maurik

Didn't put proper axis labels but the main point is that the residual for layer 1 (top left is close to zero in the bend plane but has a shift of about 30um and also RMS~40um in the non-bend plane.

Since I'm propagating to the SimTrackerHit 3D position this should not matter but even if I got that wrong (if the SimTrackerHit z-position was somehow wrong) the mean slope is about 25mrad which means that I would get corrections of about 0.025/0.32mm=8um; not enough, I think, to be responsible for this?
