Hi, I have two spheres of radius 0.6 whose origins are separated a distance of 1. So the spheres overlap and I want to calculate the total surface now. For that purpose I started to calculate the surface of the separated spheres, which is trivial and I can do by hand, but after they intersect or overlap, how can I tell the program to calculate the surface ? Thanks in advance
