Hi,

The interface between the two bodies has one surface on one body and the other surface on the other body.

Or do you mean the meshes are not conformal?

Or do you mean you did not want to mesh the internal body?

Your question was not specific.

Hi,

If you want to connect the two domains with an interface then you cannot delete the 2 surface patched. If the two surfaces are conformal and you want to join the two domains into one domain then both surfaces will be deleted as they become interior nodes.
