I am struggling a bit with mesh creation by extrusion.
I have created a quarter-cylinder which has a plane face on one side and is cut with a cone on the opposing side. Below, is the geometry with the cone-cut surface in view.
For this geometry, I want to create a mesh by meshing one of the surfaces and then create a volume mesh by extrusion.
However, the resulting mesh is not what I expected.
Is there a requirement when using extrusion that the involved opposed surfaces need to be parallel to each other, or they need to be plane, or identically curved?
Naively thinking, my geometry seems simple enough, however, Salome doesn’t create me a mesh.
Am I doing something wrong? Am I violating some assumption underlying the Extrusion3D algorithm?
