[Gmsh] Avoiding Pyramids

it is hard to provide a solution without seeing your script.
My guess is that some regions are meshed using prisms and other ones are
meshed using tetrahedrons.
Then, a layer of pyramids is required at the interface of those regions.

But again, without your script, this is just a guess...
