HERA-B Technical Documentation
The Technical Documentation of the HERA-B detector is provided
by the central design-pool (W1) at DESY/Hamburg. The CAD program used for
this purpose is I-DEAS Release 6 (SDRC/USA). Such a system has the following
If you need files in special formats, or have any suggestions or comments,
please contact H.B. Peters who is the head
of the HERA-B 3D-team.
Conflicts of different detector elements can be easily recognized.
All detector elements, wherever they have been designed, will be included
in the model either be transfering 2-D drawing or files of other 2-D CAD
systems. File transfer at the 3-D level is only possible within identical
systems. Therefore the complete information is available at DESY. The 3-D
team, the Hallendienst and the technical coordinator have thus all relevant
information at hand for a trouble-free integration of all detector elements.
Overview drawings will be distributed to all institutes at reasonable time
The 3-D team designs in addition support structures, finds free space for
A 3-D model allows to provide 2-D cuts of the detector along every plane.
Colorful 3-D drawings are very helpful for discussions and for propaganda.
The most important z-positions (including the results of the most recent
detector survey) of all detector elements (last update 18/07/00) are
