Exclamation How to add layers on the whole geometry surface

meithid is on a distinguished road

I find I can't add the layers on the whole geometry surface. In some region, the surface is not extruded for layers insertion.

In the first figure, the geometry surface is a bare cylinder. SHM can add the layers all over the surface successfully. In the second figure, SHM failed to add the layers in some corner regions. I try to tune FeatureAngle to some big value (300 degrees), but it didn't help.

Is there any way to do that the layers can be added for the second geometry surface.
