Creating a semi-cylidrical hole on a flat surface

      Hello guys, I'm new here and I have a question about the geometry editor of Fluent.


      How is it possible to create a semi-cylindrical cavity on the flat face of a semi-cylindrical volume?


      I'd like to remove the little cylinder in the image, leaving a hole. I must point out that this is a fluid domain, so I don't want to have any thickness in holes (which instead appears using "shell" function).


      Thank you for the attention!

      Create the large semi-cylindrical volume first. Sketch the circle for the small cylinder, and use the Pull tool, but before you pull, click on Cut so that SpaceClaim will use the new solid as a tool to subtract or cut from the first volume.
