Hello everyone,

I am working on the turbine blade optimization for our existing turbine runner to increase efficiency. I have the design in Solidworks and converted it as a solid to Ansys DM. But I don't know if it is possible to define hub, shroud, inlet, outlet, LE, and TE on the solid geometry which is necessary to generate Flowpath. Or should I redesign this in Blade Modeler? If so I did several times but it doesn't seem exactly the same as the real one. I attached several pictures of the existing runner below. Does anyone have any ideas on this?

Thanks in advance
