How do I configure snappyHexMesh to produce mesh's with one element in a direction ?

Eg. I'm meshing a Cylinder and i only want a '2 dimensional' mesh

Good evening,

Simply use the extrudeMesh functionality on one of the boundaries in the empty direction after snappyHexMesh.

Kind regards,

Niels
