The submapping method is one of the most used techniques to generate structuredhexahedral meshes. This method splits the geometry into pieces logically equivalentto an hexahedron. Then, it meshes each patch keeping the mesh compatibility between pieces by solving an integer linear problem. The quality of the final discretizationis governed by the objective function that defines the linear problem.Thus, in this work we propose a new objective function that better distributes the number of intervals among the edges of the geometry. In addition, special procedureshave to be developed in order to apply the submapping method to volumes with holes. This article also presents two original contributions to efficiently mesh geometries that contain holes. Finally, it presents several numerical examples that show the applicability of the developed algorithms.
