I converted a block into the swept block type in ICEM, when I try to extrude the free face of the resultant swept block I see an error that the extrusion actually fails.

Could some one please help me out.

Also my intention here is only to explore the feautures of ICEM CFD so I'd appreciate any description explaining the actual purpose of having the swept blocks.
Best regards,

I also could not get it to work properly... It pops up and says that extrusion is not supported. I will ask about it...
