Getting Started with SiD DD4HEP

At the moment, our code is committed to the DESY SVN repository, where the core DD4hep software and the CLIC and ILD models are stored as well. This is to make it easier to include SiD in the standard tests. The latest/work version is labelled SiD _o1_v01. The XML configuration is located in lcgeo/SiD/compact/SiD_o1_v01 and the C++ drivers are located in lcgeo/detector/

Browse or check out the code via

If needed for read access, a new basic account can be registered for anyone, by anyone else who has a grid certificate, at:

Build example:

svn co lcgeo
source /cvmfs/
source /cvmfs/
cd lcgeo/
rm detector/detector/calorimeter/SHcal*
rm detector/detector/calorimeter/SEcal*
rm detector/detector/CaloTB/CaloPrototype*
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=`which g++` -DCMAKE_C_COMPILER=`which gcc` -C /cvmfs/ ..
make -j4
make install
source ../bin/

Run example for ddsim:

source /cvmfs/ 
source /cvmfs/
export LCGRELEASES=/cvmfs/
export PYTHONDIR=/cvmfs/
export PATH=/cvmfs/$PATH
export PYTOOLSDIR=/cvmfs/
source bin/
python example/
ddsim --compactFile=SiD/compact/SiD_o1_v01.xml --runType=batch --inputFile mcparticles.slcio -N=1 --outputFile=testSiD_o1_v01.slcio

Then to look at the output:

dumpevent testSiD_o1_v01.slcio 1


anajob testSiD_o1_v01.slcio
