jainanup27 is on a distinguished road

I am trying to run a optimization problem. My optimization flow is
Design Modeler --> ICEM CFD --> Fluent --> Design Exploration.

When I change the parameters in the Design Exploration the Geometry changes. With this change in geometry the mesh created in ICEM CFD also changes . However, it seems that the blocking created during the first iteration remains the sane. As result when I change the geometric parameters, due the same blocking and changed mesh I have overlapping edges.

Can anyone tell how to change the blocking with the change in Geometry.
Or is there some other way that I cam create mesh around the geometry without creating blocking and for the rest of the domain I have blocking.

I have attached the snapshot. Image 1 is the geometry. Image 2 is the blocking and image is 3 is if we can do something like this.
