> Dear all,
> I have included Gmsh as library in my c++ program and I need to use it to
> mesh a volume region bounded by a surface mesh: in my program I have
> defined a surface mesh and I need to import its vertices and elements into
> a gmsh structure to be able to create a volume mesh starting from this
> surface.
> Steps to do so, as far as I can understand, are:
> -          Declare a GModel* that will contain the surface
> -          Add a GFace* into the GModel
> -          Add vertices and cells to the GFace* (get them from the mesh
> created in my program). Actually define a mesh for this GFace object
> -          Create the volume mesh
> Is this correct? Does anyone have any suggestion on how to write this
> portion of code?
> PS I have already looked at the example in utils/api_demos/mainSimple.cpp
> and have adapted it to my case, but I would rather avoid reading/writing
> files to transfer meshes between the my program and gmsh to avoid
> performance issues.
