Method: Sweep with Quads
 
Hi,

could it be that the sweep method using quads is not efficient at all?
If i use the sweep method for my geometry and setting it to use tris, my mesh (ca 300k nodes) is generated within 2min, if i switch the method to quad/tri or quad, it takes hours.
For generating meshes with quad elements, should i use a different method?
