Default Importing an additional airfoil in Autogrid5

I have a model with a rotor blade. I have been asked to add a splitter blade that is half the chord length and the trailing edges are at the same axial location. The splitter is equidistant between the rotor blades. The splitter blade extends to about the 30% span. It is a airfoil that has been cut. I was able to import this blade in, but from what I was told I had to import the blade such that the blade extends beyond the hub and case. I figure I could then create a shroud gap. The gap for the other airfoil is ~0.03". The gap for the splitter is ~0.5" to the shroud. I created a shroud gap for the splitter and tried to create the flow path but it failed. Can this be done in Autogrid5?

I think you may learn autoblade first.Maybe you can easily solve this problem after you have mastered autoblade.
