Dear Stabb,

I guessing based on your previous email, that you are trying to run using Docker.

There is a known issue with external files in Docker, you need to use the absolute path in the input for FLUKA to find them. While this is working with the OPEN card, the VOXEL card limits the filename to 10 character, where the absolute path doesn't fit.

But there is a workaround you can use:
1.) Go to the folder where your voxel file is.
2.) Create a smbolic link with the command:
ln -srf your_voxel_file.vxl /tmp/vxl.vxl
3.) In the FLUKA input / flair use the /tmp/vxl.vxl file in the VOXEL card.

Unfortunately you will need to recreate the symbolic link every time you run the FLUKA for Docker script.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
