Default Flow over surface

Peszkow is on a distinguished road

I am simulating flow(ANSYS 16.2 Workbench+Fluent) through compressor and I've got suggestion that at first i should model blades as a surfaces created by mean cambers of blades sections. And here comes my question how to mesh such geometry? because element in regions with blades a created as if there were no blades(surfaces goes through elements instead of contacting with them only on faces).
DesignModeler sees those surface and when i named them there are visible in fluent BC, but Workbench meshing module does not see them

Have anyone done similiar simulation ?

I am starting to think that idea with modelling blades as surfaces might be wrong or I misunderstood something.

Thanks in advance for help.
