Hi everyone,

I have a general basic question about meshing a tomography geometry.

I have an .stl file created from tomography of a porous medium. My problem with meshing is that most pores are isolated and when I run checkMesh, it gives me "number of unconnected parts: 1649" and creates 1649 .obj files. Obviously it's not possible to mesh each pore separately. Is there any way that I could mesh this geometry?

This image is an example of one slice of this geometry


Thanks a lot for the help
