1) In command RANDOMIZ, WHAT(1) must be 1., not 27.

2) In your geometry there are two errors:

a) Region R3 and Region R4 have a surface in common (at Z=2.)

b) Region R4 and Region R5 are partially overlapping (from Z=5.

to Z=7.)

I think that in your input I discern a misunderstanding. In the definition

of an RCC body the meaning of the parameters is (see the manual):

V_x, V_y, V_z (coordinates of the centre of one of the circular plane faces)

H_x, H_y, H_z (x, y and z components of a VECTOR corresponding to cylinder

height, pointing to the other plane face)

R (cylinder radius)

It looks that you have confused H_z with the z-coordinate of the second

face. But in body b2, starting from Z=2., with H_z=5., the z coordinate

of the second face is 7., not 5.

And in body b3, starting from Z=5., with H_z=7., the z coordinate of the

second face is 12., not 7.

Therefore body b2 and b3 have the part from Z=5. to 7. in common.

And body b1 starts at Z=0. and ends at Z=2., while body b2 starts at

Z=2. and ends at Z=7. The face at Z=2. belongs to two regions, which

is not legal.

I repeat here what I have written in a previous answer to another

user:

The easiest way to make a correct geometry in a cylindrical geometry is to

define a cylinder, and to cut it with one or two planes.

Otherwise, if you really want to use 3 RCCs, one from 0 to 2, one from

2 to 5, and one from 5 to 7 (which is what I guess you want):

RPP B1 ...ok...

RPP B2 ...ok...

RCC b1 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 2.0 5.0

RCC b2 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 5.0 5.0

RCC b3 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 7.0 5.0

END

R1 5 ...ok...

R2 5 B2 - b3m

R3 5 b1

R4 5 b2 - b1

R5 5 b3 - b2

END

In this way the face a Z=2. belongs to R3, but not to R4 (it is

subtracted from R4), and the face at Z=5. belongs to R4 but to R5.
