I have a turbine blade geometry (say at 5 degree). The blocking is already done with respected to that blade angle.

I want to Change the blade angle (say to 2 degree). I used the Translation Option for geometry and could rotate the geomtry.

But I cannot rotate the blocking surrounding the old blade geometry. Any advice on this matter will be appreciable.

Check the geomtry in the attached picture

I don't think ICEM is capable of doing that.
Once you change your geometry, your entire case will change. If you have to simulate for a new case (by changing angle, etc.) you will need to start a new project and start over. I think there is also an option of using scripting to implement all the steps of your project 1 to project 2. Which means, the computer will utilize all steps of project1 into the geometry of project2. You might want to look more into it.
Hope it helps

If you have rotated your geometry the desired angle, you can rotate your blocking approach the same angle using the right tool that ICEM provides which is Rotate blocks. You can define the rotation by axis, angle and center of rotation. I used this tool for a similar problem with a wind turbine blade. Howerver, probably (don't remember very well), you have to review the associations.
