Hi everyone,

I have been adviced to use Gmsh instead of Gambit to make an OpenFOAM study, the interface is great and looks like Gambit however I was wondering if there were any possible operations such as doing the instersection between two solids. For exemple if I have two cylinders crossing each others and I want to delete the intersected part inside the volume, how can I do that? (I know there is a split function but it is not available for surfaces).

Thank you for your answers and the CFD online community.
