Hello Norman,

The geometry exists in the iss40 branch as detector
"HPS-PhysicsRun2016-HodoscopeDualPlane-v0-2pt3-fieldmap". I'm confident
that there is no intersection, though - it was just a scoring plane that is
fairly close to the edge of the vacuum box, but now that I got the Python
script working, I was able to visually verify that it does not intersect.

It's never a bad idea to verify, but if it is overly complicated to do, you
don't need to worry about it.

Thanks,

Kyle
