does Gmsh mesher able to handle a volume penetrated by lines?
(I want to model a composite with randomly oriented straight or curved fibres, as shown in the atached screenshot. To reduce DOFs, it is better to model the fibres as beams. So I wonder if your software could mesh a volume, taking the lines as a sort of internal "semi-singularities''
In my model each end of every line ("fibre") always situates on a facet of the cube ("matrix volume"). In your screenshots I see that Gmsh successfully meshes a volume penetrated by a "tube". But does it work if we put the "tube" radius to be zero, i.e. when the tube degenerates into a line? - This is my case...)
