Meshing of volumes.

Good day.
Could please anyone tell me, how to mesh volumes with standard OpenCASCADE Tools? Any reference or example, please.

Thanks in advance.

It is impossible for open source part of OCC. But you can see project SALOME. Or may be there is something in commercial parts of OCC.
