The configuration is right but the location of leading edge and trailing edge is opposite... causing stream-wise error.
Are there anything wrong with my file?

Please do the following steps to repair your orientation:

1. Open your project with the wrong orientated blade, select "row 1"
2. Click on the left panel under Geometry Definition "Init from an external CAD file" (Picture 1)
3. "File" "Open": Import your wrong orientated geomTurbo file. Make sure "row 1" in the row definition panel on the left side is selected during the following procedure.
4. (optional) Click alt-s do make the solid visible (Picture 2)
5. The left edge is your leading edge. Go to "Select" "Curves". Select your leading edge (its marked yellow then). Right click. "Link to leading edge". Ignore the error.
6. The right edge is your trailing edge. Go to "Select "Curves". Select your trailing edge (its marked yellow then). Right click. "Link to trailing edge".
7. Click somewhere else to unmark the trailing edge. Maybe click "Select" "Curves" again, now you can draw a bounding box to select all curves of the blade. After all curves (except leading and trailing edge) are highlighted yellow: Right click, "link to blade"
8. Go to "Select" "Surface list". Mark both surfaces. Click Apply. Right click anywhere in the CAD-window and click "link to blade".
9. Close the CAD-window.

10. Generate a high quality blade mesh within seconds with the row wizard. :-)
