jasonbot is on a distinguished road
I have a 2D mesh that I need to extrude to a 3D mesh (apply thickness and inflation).

I have tried meshing a 3D model of my geometry using multizone/sweep but I cannot achieve the fully quad mesh that I desire.

Finally I've tried setting my 2D mesh to 3D and applying a thickness to the geometry which gets me closer to what I want (a mesh with thickness). However, is there a way to apply an inflation/discretisation to this thickness?
