How to mesh a sheet body


Is it possible to mesh a volume that belongs to a sheet body? When I try to mesh it, I get the error message below.


Cubit>mesh Body 7
Meshing body:
ERROR: Volume 7 is a sheet body
       Cannot use 'Mesh Volume <id>' to mesh a sheet body
       Use 'Mesh Surface <id>' instead
ERROR: Body 7 ( volName@P ) meshing unsuccessful using scheme: map
Finished Command: mesh body 7

Meshing commands require volume/surface/curve/vertex types. You can mesh the surfaces in a sheet body with

mesh surface in body 7
