Mold for Negative Space of Hand Grip

I'm not sure how to do this.  I'm trying to create a mold of a hand grip (negative space) for 3D printing.  This is hard to explain but think something like squeezing a chunk of clay with your hand. I need that squeezed clay, not the hand.  Does that make sense? 

There was a utility in my wishlist for about $40 that would do this.  This tool would combine two different objects then remove one of them to create an impression in the other object.  I don't remember the name of the tool but for some reason it's no longer in my wishlist or apparently in the Daz shop anymore.

Please help!

    The product you're thinking of was called GESCON, by @Alberto (Alvin Bemar in the Daz store), that seems to have been removed from the store. You can accomplish the same thing using a boolean operation in a modeling program like Hexagon or Blender.

    Yes, that was it.  As for your suggestion, I would prefer to stick with Daz Studio for this.  Don't know much about the other programs.

    As far as I'm aware, GESCON was the only option for booleans inside DS. You MIGHT be able to accomplish something similar with Proteus, also by Alberto, but otherwise a modeling program is the only way to do that.

    Gescon II is about to come out (there is an announcement thread in the products forum). I am guessing that is why it was pulled.
