Re: [Question #695461]: How to create a solid polyhedron capable of interacting with gridConnections?

Indeed, it is a sort of shell model.

It is always possible to add interactions between nodes across the
hollow domain, emulating non-hollow solid somehow. But there are
probably more efficient techniques to achieve such a thing if it is
really the objective. For instance an actual decomposition into
finite/difference/volume/whatever elements, so that there is a global
stiffness matrix involving all nodes at once, and giving forces on them
by a matrix*vector multiplication. PFacets could still be used to
represent external shape and control interactions with other objects,
but not for emulating a shell.
