hey guys,

I have a problem with the import of a blade profile. I have the CAD file and would like to mesh it with turbogrid. so i imported the geometry in desgin modeler. there i created 4 sketches for the inlet,hub, shroud and outlet. i can define now the sketches in the flowpath.

but finally DM returns me the error "invalid property"

has anyone a good idea how to fix this?

can you post a picture?
what do you mean by "define sketches in the flowpath"?
I suppose you try to extrude a fluid volume around the blade with 4 given cross-sections, right?
