 April 27, 2010, 09:26 Structured Mesh in GMSH #1 New Member   Vitor Braga Join Date: Oct 2009 Posts: 28 Rep Power: 7 Hi, I've started to use GMSH yesterday, and I'm having problems trying to generate a structured grid. I'm following tutorial number 3, and I try to extrude the rectangle and the mesh as well, but I can't find the "Layers" option in the GUI. Can anybody help? Furthermore, how can I use GMSH command lines in windows? (sorry for the fundamental question)

Thank you. Regards, Vitor
