Hi, Foamers,

I have problem about making axi-symmetric mesh from a planner mesh. I know the utility makeAxialMesh can perfectly handle this problem it the axis is one of the geometry patch.

But for my problem, the geometry is a annular geometry, which means the axis is outside of the geometry. How can we handle this kind of problem??

thank you all in advance.
