class ITrackingGeometryBuilder
#include <Acts/Geometry/ITrackingGeometryBuilder.hpp>

Interface class for the TrackingGeometry building, this is used by the TrackingGeometrySvc to build the geoemtry.

The TrackingGeometry is written to the detector store and thus not created as a std::shared_ptr.

The TrackingGeometry is returned as a non-const object in order to recreate from conditions callback if necessary.

Subclassed by Acts::KDTreeTrackingGeometryBuilder, Acts::TrackingGeometryBuilder

TrackingGeometry Interface methode.


gctx – ist the geometry context for witch the geometry is built
