Trim and fill closed edges

Wondering if there is a way to trim and fill closed edges inside an object vs the sides?

Example here. If I trim tool with fill hole option selected it works well on the edges of an object. But not if I’m trying to carve out a shape in the middle on an object.

If I remove that option it doesn’t make the object solid.

For now it’s not possible because the hole filling algorithm only fills holes independently.

Connecting holes automatically is something I wanted to do but it can go wrong very easily for complex cases.

Maybe at some point I’ll make something and add an option in the trim panel, like “try connecting holes”.

However the future Remesher “substract” can help in achieving that, when it will be released.
