Gemoetry in Ansys DM anad Meshing

My geometry is two pipes intersecting at each other at 90degrees forming an L-shaped cylinder. When I make circles and extrude, I get this geometry but I can only define number of meshes at circle edges and junction curve. I want to define number of nodes longitudinally along the pipe but since using extrude command, I do not get longitudinal edges, I cannot do it. With defining number of nodes at edges, I can refine my mesh as much as possible but if I want to control refining making dense at junction and coarse along the length, it does not work to save computation time.

I have tried to draw the same geometry by sketching two lines perpendicular to each other but with revolve command, I can only draw one cylinder. When I want to draw second cylinder, it does not revolve. Can anyone help?

You can try with 'sizing' in the mesh control options. You can roughly calculate the size of the element and give it as a 'maximum'. I think this would work.
