Question Daughter volume sharing a surface with its mother 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 07 Dec, 2014
From: Andrea Conti <Andrea Conti>

There have already been many questions about holes: in general, it is quite clear that the best way to implement a filled hole in a host material is to represent the hole as a daughter volume of the holed volume, with the filling material as material of the daughter (or air if the hole is hollow).

But this way the daughter will share a surface with the mother (that is, the mouth of the hole, on the same plane as the host material's surface) and nobody addressed this problem: is it acceptable ? Or are there going to be problems with the consistency of the geometry ?

Thanks in advance.

Andrea
