I found some commands in the Internet:
Merge "<mesh>"

Surface Loop(1) = {1};
Volume(1) = {1};

I put those lines in a .geo file but it the 3D meshing doesn't work:
Self intersection surface mesh, computing intersections (this could  
take a while)
Surface mesh is wrong, cannot do the 3D mesh

How can I resolve those type of error?
Moreover, it said to check the full log for details but where is it?
