Dear all,

I'm trying to build a tetrahedral mesh using 3 STL surfaces. Once STL have
been built, I imported to gmsh by using "merge" option. However, there is
nothing visible in gmsh gui. Further, there are not warnings or errors:

Can you give some hints in order to solve my problem. Attached to this mail
there are two stl examples:

1. Test1.stl -- built directly from Matlab
2. Test2.stl -- built from meshlab

Thanks in advance

Best regards
