"Different nb of segment..." - Error using Extrusion 3D Algorithm

Hi,

I want to create a hexahedral mesh on a rotationally symmetric linear motor assembly. For this purpose, I created a group of the whole area being rotated. This area constitutes a 2D sub-mesh using the Quadrangle Mapping algorithm. The geometry was choosen so that this 2D sub-mesh is exactly regular. For the 3D mesh I used the Extrusion 3D algorithm and for the 1D mesh the Wire Discretization algorithm, respectively.

However, after computing the mesh I get an error message (see screenshot) and I don't really understand what's the problem here. Can anybody tell me the reason for the error or what I need to change?

Thanks

Re: "Different nb of segment..." - Error using Extrusion 3D Algorithm

I found the problem by myself: For the hypothesis of the 1D mesh I used Local Length instead of Number of Segments. A fixed Local Length leads of course to different number of segments on the circumference at the inner and the outer diameter. That's why the intermediate parts of the mesh couldn't be computed.
