I'm a complete beginner to ICEM and I've been following this tutorial to Hexa mesh an airfoil.

The tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVyvEH-u0wQ&t=555s

What I get and He gets after pre-meshing is completely different. Could anyone help me with where I had possibly gone wrong?

Also at 10:45 on the video, he creates a new surface named Leading edge and he is able to choose the small part of the airfoil curve but when I select I'm able to choose only the entire curve.

Someone, please help me with the issue. It would be great if you could replicate it and help me out.

Hello,

You need to delete the blocking inside of the airfoil, then re-mesh.

To make a leading edge, add some points along that curve (either by location or give it a parameter where you want the points to appear), then use the segment curve, then select the curve and the points where you want to split it.
