Default Mapped mesh on curved body

I need a mapped mesh on a curved body so that I can get data at set coordinates for use in an optical design tool. ANSYS Mesher has told me that my body is non sweepable so I have generated a body with a 'mapped face' for ANSYS Mesher to perform a patch conforming mesh on.

This, however is taking hours to merely mesh a surface mesh.

Any suggestions as to how to approach the meshing better?
