This module should be added to the module chain for any complex if the user
suspects there may be a mesh issue. The module will print a warning if there is.
\subsection{2D mesh extrusion}
This module allows a 2D mesh, quads, triangles or both, to be extruded in the
$z$ direction to make a simple 3D mesh made of prisms and hexahedra. It is also
capable of extruding the high-order curvature within the 2D mesh. The module
requires two parameters:
\begin{lstlisting}[style=BashInputStyle]
NekMesh -m extrude:layers=n:length=l 2D.xml 3D.xml
\end{lstlisting}
length which determines how long the $z$ extrusion will be and layers, the
number of elements in the $z$ direction.
