Default ICEM meshing, How to transform/ copy the hexa mesh

Hello all,

I have created a Hexa mesh for the rotating part of a mixing tank with a Rushton turbine impeller. I am trying to transform the mesh so instead of one impeller I have 3 of them.

By transforming only the mesh, in export, I get some errors in fluent and even the BC does not work for the other 2 impellers. (please let me know if I can export it somehow that I don't get errors in fluent)

I also tried to copy the geometry and the blocking (using transform Geometry and then transform Blocking), this way I can create the new parts and define BC for them, and then create the mesh for all the impellers. But the blocking becomes somehow connected through some edges for all the impellers.
I want them to be separated not connected.

Does anybody have any experience that can share with me? Or in case there is another way to do this?
