Hey guys,

I've created a mesh which is meant to have a cylinder 'cut-out' from it but when I mesh it, it isn't quite a full circle, instead it has two straight lines on the left and right hand sides. I've tried modifying the code and I can't seem to find a solution and I'd appreciate any help you can give. I'll paste my code below this as well as a picture of the mesh.

Many thanks.

Code:
