> When attempting to create a 3D mesh in a volume defined from a .stl
> surface mesh (fairly coarse, not optimal cell distribution), I receive
> the error below. A few questions:
> 1) Are the intersecting faces related to the 'identical verts'
> 2) What is the -d switch and how do I use it? .. I haven't been able
> to find any mention of this anywhere.
> 3) Are the facet numbers listed with their geometric definition
> somewhere? My .stl file doesn't seem to have facet numbers, only their
> geometric definitions. I don't really want to count to the 6770th one
> if I can help it!
> 4) What are the numbers used to describe the intersecting subfaces?
> Node numbers? Are they recorded in a file somewhere?
