I have modeled a wind turbine blade in solidworks. After importing it to design modeler and creating fluid domain, when i try to mesh the geometry,it fails. I have tried both sldprt and IGS formats. Geometry does not even mesh with automatic meshing.

maybe you should freeze the blade geometry before creating your domain, then split the blade from the domain.
try to use Parasolid format(x_t) instead of those formats maybe it works

You should bring good quality geometry.

Thank you all for your replies. Enabling body cleaning and suppressing all bodies except solid bodies before generating imported geometry worked for me.
