A comprehensive Geant4 simulation was built for the sage spectrometer. The simulation package includes the silicon and germanium detectors, the mechanical structure and the electromagnetic fields present in sage. This simulation can be used for making predictions through simulating experiments and for comparing simulated and experimental data to better understand the underlying physics.
