Question Imprint and Extract Volume: Part surfaces and symmetry plane

Hi all

I have CAD surfaces (sheet bodies) of half a car and CAD surfaces of half a tunnel. The symmetry plane has no 'holes' where the car surfaces end.


Is there a way I can remesh the fluid volume without using a wrapper in this case? I managed to get a conformal mesh by imprinting the contacting surfaces onto the symmetry plane. Zip edges works as well. However extract volume tells me it 'could not form any topological regions'.
The goal is to have everything automated so if possible using part operations.

RESOLVED: I decided to get around this issue by trimming the symmetry plane in CAD
