[Gmsh] Defining Mesh

The original scalpel is present in the .step file and in the .geo file I
have defined one compound surface. My goal is to be able to have a uniform
mesh throughout that compound surface.  The end goal is to have a process
for making uniform meshes across surfaces that are one surface but divided
on a CAD model.  Thanks for your help.
