# [Gmsh] after extrude define structured mesh

```Hi,

I am having some kind of trouble to define a structured mesh
after extruding some surfaces. I think the problem is that I
have to define the 'Transfinite Surface's and I don't know
the numbers of the point, because I extruded them.
Is there a way to do that with the gui or does anybody have
a different hint?

I attach a sample, maybe that helps understanding my problem.

Is it easier not to use 'extrude' and rather do the volumes
by hand?

Greetings!
Fabian
