Default Gap/holes in STL Files

m.ehlen is on a distinguished road

I'm doing a mesh in snappy with several intersected STL files. With a coarse background mesh everything is fine. With a fine mesh, the volume is open somewhere. Is there a utility to find the whole or gap in the stl files. Due to the reason that the stl are intersected it not possible to check for open edges.
