Hi Alexis, 

I'm not quite sure to understand what you're trying to do. 

the attached .geo seems to work. You can scale the whole mesh afterwards.

I can not understand why the volume(1) in the attached filed is not the
one I am expecting to define:
it should be the union of the three extruded quarter of circle and of the
part of the ball.

 When commenting the current surface(1) and uncommenting all the other
things, everything is ok.

Maybe it is because of an orientation problem, but I've checked twice, and
this does not explain that doing the union of the four volumes works

I thank you for all your great work, and thank you in advance for your

Best regards,
