Concentric Cavity Filling

Attached is the jpeg of the surface.

I want to close the gap between the offset surfaces as highlighted but Meshmixer completely closes the surface as shown in the image. How to accomplish this task?

Filling open boundaries via Inspector closes each open boundary per se. That results in the issue you got.

 

Several options:

1. Do a PlaneCut (with some infill) a bit below the open boundaries. If the PlaneCut preview shows an infill MM is able to fill it. If you don't see some infill in the preview move the cutting plane...

2. SELECT both boundaries completely by double clicking right at the boundaries > There should be an orange ring of faces on each open boundary now. Run Edit/Join on this selection. Note: This will smooth the sharp edges of the boundaries.

3. SELECT a corresponding region on both boundaries only. There has to be exactly one region on each boundary without missed faces within. Run Edit/Bridge at Refine = 0 to get a flat connection between both boundaries. Accepting this results in a single open boundary which can be filled via Inspector.
