### [GiDlist] Quadratic mesh problem solved

Hi everyone,
I found why the surface meshing was giving me problems:
Rfast doesn't mesh curved quadratical elements with curved sides, while Rsurf is ok.
In case of triangles everything is fine.
Is this a bug?

kind regards

Do you get quadrilaterals with curved sides using Rfast?
My problem is that using Rfast the sides of quadrilaterals on curved surface boundaries
are linear and not quadratic. Triangles are fine (have curved sides).
I mesh only surfaces surrounging volumes, which on the other hand don't get meshed.
