Hi everyones,
I'm currently working on the subject of fluid flow in fractured porous media. The fractures are considered as the circles of zero-thinkness in 3D infinite space. The fractures can intersect together.

I want to generate a consistent mesh i.e. it takes into account the intersection lines between fractures. In the case of small number of fractures I can performance by hand. (as you see in the attached image1)

However, in the case of large number of ramdon fractures (as seeing in the following attacted files image2). It is necessary to have an automatical procedure.

Could you show me there exist a tool or a solfware for resolving this problem. Or Could you give me some advises to resolve this one, please?
