Hello Everyone!!
I am trying to mesh a turbine in Fluent.
I have three different parts namely stationary domain, rotating domain and blades. Out of which two parts are to be meshed and one part ( blades ) need not. Combine images and separate images are attaches along with.

I tried to mesh stationary and rotating fluid domain separately. To mesh stationary part, I suppressed rotating fluid domain and blades. And to mesh rotating fluid domain, I suppressed stationary fluid domain and blades. But when I unsuppress them all, it displays "update required" symbol beside MESH. Ans as I update the mesh, It does not gets updated, rather meshing runs for indefinite time (till I click stop button).

My queries are:
1) Is the approach that I am following leads to correct mesh ?
2) Is it impossible to mesh parts separately (suppressing) other parts and finally update a mesh?

P.S. I used patch independent method to mesh rotating fluid domain whereas I used sweep method to mesh stationary fluis domain.

Thank You.
Any help will be appreciated.
