Hi Arvind,

You can extrude mesh using the Extrude command (see documentation here<http://gmsh.info/doc/texinfo/gmsh.html#Extrusions>), especially to get hex mesh you might want to use the Layers and Recombine options<http://gmsh.info/doc/texinfo/gmsh.html#Structured-grids>. I enclose an example of what you can do, let me know if it helped.

Objet : [Gmsh] Extruding 2d mesh

I have a 2d (quad) mesh in .msh format. I wish to extrude this 2d mesh perpendicular to its plane as layers to get a hex mesh.

Is there a way of doing this in gmsh?
