Unhappy Error with FLowPath for centrifugal compressor

sidharath is on a distinguished road
I am trying to model rotating part/mesh of centrifugal compressor in Turbogrid. In the process of doing this, I am stuck in FlowPath - design modeler. The "Number of Layers" option in the details of FlowPath is frozen to 0 for me and i am not able to edit/change it. If I go ahead and generate the FlowPath (with 0 layers), i am getting this error
"Error: Failed to generate because of invalid property/properties
Context: ansFClientBMBladeDesign::Execute FlowPath1"

What I have done:
1.- Oriented geometry with compressor inlet along +Z direction, 0 at exducer hub. (Please see the picture)
2.- Sliced the geometry with ZX plane and taken the projections of the hub, shroud, inlet and outlet on different sketches. (Please see the picture)
3.- Trying to generate the FlowPath but facing above mentioned problem.

Any insights/inputs on what could be going wrong and what can i do to solve this problem would be highly appreciated.
Thank you.
