Dear all,

I am quite new to ICEM CFD. I would like to study the flow around a h-type darrieus VAWT in a wind tunnel. I saw some tutorials on blocking aerofoil in 3d too. Can someone guide me on how to do blocking for the blades and central shaft in 3d? The model looks similar to the image in the link below.

I am just wondering if you were able to figure out a suitable blocking strategy for the 3D VAWT? I've been able to generate meshes for a single aerofoil and also for the rotating domain. But when I try to combine the two I am having issues?
