how to mesh a cylinder
Hi everyone,
i want to mesh a simple 3-D cylinder not with gambit default grids but in the form of controllable number of nodes in every 3 directions and in the shape of concentric circles...
can anybody help me?

yes, possible in Gambit. What type of help you need? is this finite cylinder or infinite cylinder?

thanks far for your reply,
the cylinder is a finite and simple 3-D cylinder
all i want to know is how can i create such a volume with meshes as mentioned above(controllable numbers of grids in every 3 direction while the number of grids in one direction is independent of the other direction).
for this i decided to revolve a 2-D rectangular face with activating the "with mesh" option to create a cylinder with known number of grids and in the form of concentric circles but after revolving the face, just the cylinder was created but mesh didn't revolve with the face.
