Hello all,

I would really appreciate if you could help me out with this one.

I created my geometry in Freecad (I have no access to other CAD-programs). I attached two pictures where you can see the geometry.

As you can see in the images, the geometry is quite simple. Nevertheless I am having issues with meshing: I would like to define the radial number of divisions of the geometry. Axially, no problem (sweep/edge sizing).

I thought that I maybe could use "mapped face meshing" and define the number of divisions there, but I cannot used mapped face meshing on the base face. Why?!

Then I thought I could add an edge to the imported geometry and then do edge size meshing, but I havenīt figured out yet how to add "dummy" edges in order to do so.

Once again, I would REALLY appreciate if someone could help me out.

Thanks in advance!
