Mesh outiside an obstacle
Hi all,

i have a little problem with gmsh. i would like to do a geometry with some hole or obstacle (suppose a square with a circle inside for simplicity, 1 cell in z direction) but i would like to create the mesh only outside the hole (so in the volume between the square and the circle). Is possible?

At the end i dont know if for OF is a real problem because the patch on the surface of the circle is "wall" so nothing enter in the circle but i would like to do that anyway (if i build up a movie of the simulation i dont want to see the mesh inside the hole).

Thanks a lot
