Hi all,
I am new in ICEM and trying to model aircraft with propeller. In order to do that I choose sliding mesh and am trying to create unstructured mesh since blocking will be cost too much time. First, I tried to create meshes for propeller and its boundary separately. But when create volume mesh, it creates volume meshes inside the propeller even I have created body for fluid. My curves are red and I could not find the problem. Could you help me?

I am adding link and some pictures of project below.

Thank you so much

siw will become famous soon enough
You are using the Octree volume mesh method. Put an OFRN material point inside the propeller. I assume you have a LIVE material point in the fluid where you want the mesh. See if that helps

Maybe a stupid question, but where are your surfaces? Can you show these?
They are more important than curves. Probably your propellor is not closed
