Default 3-D Rotor Blade Rectangular Mesh in ICEM

Hi all,

My professor wants me to develop a new mesh for our research into advanced flow control for rotor craft blades.

I'm tasked with developing a 3-D mesh of a rotor blade but more specifically he wants a rectangular mesh on the surface of the airfoil. This is where I'm stuck. Looking online it appears most similar meshes use a tetrahedral mesh. I can use a tetrahedral mesh further away from the surface, but the main thing is that it starts as a rectangular mesh at the surface.

I have a lot of experience in ICEM doing a similar mesh but for a simple 3D airfoil shape not an entire rotor blade.

I would appreciate any help.
