How to mesh a circle by Gambit?
 
Hi,

I found a strange thing when I tried to mesh a circle by Gambit. As I thought, the circle is a regular shape and it should be easy to be meshed by Quad-Map scheme. The real situation is that I could not mesh the circle by Quad-Map scheme perhaps because elements near the center of the circle are not quadrilateral. I also tried to mesh the circle by Wedge-Primitive scheme by means of drawing a virtual line. It failed because Gambit told me they (or it ) are the same edge.

Is there any good method to mesh a circle by Gambit?

Thanks for your help!

Draw a square around the center.

Another option is to split the circle into 4 90 slices and mesh with quad/tri primitive.
