Question Determining intersection point of two meshes

What's the easiest way to determine where two meshes intersect? I don't suppose it's possible to get that information out of the collision detection engine without having it modify the meshes' positions & velocities?

Smile Never mind, I think I've got it.

Turn off viz.DYNAMICS for both objects. Request collision notification for one of them. Examine evt.pos and evt.normal attributes of the collision event object. Yes?
