[Gmsh] Surface with many borders

Hello everyone,

I'm part of a team in French PPRIME institute, devoted to 3D
reconstruction of polycrystalline aggregates. I am studying the use of
GMSH to construct the geometry of our aggregates. But I am facing a
problem when I need to create complex (non planar) surfaces bordered by
more than 4 lines. I understand that Ruled Surfaces are limited to 3 or
4 lines.
Others have asked about this and M. Geuzaine answered properly, but they
used imported STP files (or else). I'm - on the onther hand -  using the
GEO from the start.
Is there an other type of surface (like Bspline surface for example)
that I can use ? Do you know a way to solve my problem ?
I joined the GEO file.

Thanks for your time and help !
