Joining Swept block with Structured blocks

I am using Icem to grid a compressor. Unfortunately I found a triangular face in the diffusor and I had to grid it using a swept block. However, I am not sure about which would be the best way to join it with the remaining structured blocks. Please, seee the picture below.
Thank you very much

You can not join the square side of a mapped block to the source or target (in this case triangular) face of a swept block.
Even if the swept block had source and target faces with 4 corners, you could not join them.
You can add another swept block and continue the swept blocks out thru to the boundary of the blocking.
Or, instead of a swept block, you could have used a Yblock (really three mapped blocks in a "Y" or quarter ogrid configuration) and extended that out to the surface of the model...
