For creating the FE mesh, I used the 'Layered Mesh' feature to create a homogeneous mesh with equal aspect ratios. Although the opposite surfaces are equal, a layered mesh is not generated.

Answer

A layered solid mesh with a uniform distribution can only be created for solids whose opposite surfaces are defined as exactly equal. It is also necessary to ensure that the lines contained in the surfaces match: they must not be in the form of different divisions (see the figure) or be defined twice.

Please check the geometry of your model. For this, the feature 'Tools → Model Check → Overlapping Lines' may also be helpful.
