Default ICEM 3D : only surfaces meshed. How can I mesh the volume ?

Rion is on a distinguished road

My problem concerns a volume mesh that I can't mesh. I want to generate a mesh for a flow duct, then I need to mesh the volume in the duct.

I'm using blocks in ICEM 12.0.1, and when I visualise the pre-mesh or compute the mesh, I can only have elements on surfaces of the duct.
I defined a body in the geometry, imposed a max mesh size of 1 for surfaces and edges, initialized 3D blocking, associated block to geometry and assigned pre-meshing parameters, but I still have only surfaces ...

If you have any clue for me... it would be great !
