mesh - file from stand alone project

I've got a .cas- and a .dat - file. In order to check the quality of the mesh I want to create a meshfile out of this "stand - alone - project" (Fluent Analysis System in the toolbox)

Does anyone know how to get the mesh (.msh) from an existing Case or Data?

i never had the occasion to try but in Fluent if you click on file>write>boundary mesh, it will generate a .msh file for you. May be that's what you want let me know if it works

That was the first thing I did ;)
I tried it and noticed that the boundary mesh and the "normal mesh" are nt the same. If I have a normal mesh (for example in the component setting) I can link it to the finite Element Modeler and check the settings. (skewness, aspect ratio etc.)

I guess the finite Element Modeler should be linked to the "stand - alone -project" similar to the coponent construction, but I don't get it.
