MechEngineerTurbo is on a distinguished road

I am a mechanical engineering student currently working on a project to develop a micro gas turbine for power based applications. I am very new to CFD and am willing to learn.

I was trying to see computationally what difference would it make to introduce guide vanes at the inlet duct as compared to no vanes in the inlet.

I am having trouble creating an inlet without vanes and then exporting it to turbogrid for meshing.

For my first problem, I have used bladegen to model the inlet with vanes, used turbogrid for the meshing and used CFX for the analysis.

Basically I require an inlet with '0' blades. I will be really grateful if someone can help me out with this !
