You first have to generate a mesh... And Gmsh is mostly a Delaunay mesh
generator, i.e. generating tetrahedra. If you want hexahedra, you will
have to define transfinite meshes and/or extruded meshes (cf.
tutorial/t6.geo and demos/piece-extr-rec.geo).

Please read and understand the examples in the tutorials before posting
to this list.
