the answer to your solutuion depends on the type of geometry that u r having with u.

if the geometry is from other cad software u have to make sure that the
geometry which will be a surface model is a collection of closed
surfaces or quilts. a closed quilt is absolutely essential for using
the geometry in downstream applications.so first check whether ur
geometry is a imported feature or not and then we can discuss on the
core-cavity creation or extraction.
