Default Error when exporting 3D mesh from pointwise to cfx

I wanted to practice generating a 3D mesh in pointwise and exporting it to cfx for further analysis.

To do this I first attempted exporting the CAE mesh from the Boeing 747 Nacelle tutorial in pointwise. I set the solver to ansys cfx, reset the boundary conditions, selected the three blocks and exported it to a .grd file.

However, when I try importing the mesh to cfx I get the error: "Unable to import mesh: No 3D elements imported".

I can't seem to find a solution to this problem and any help would be greatly appreciated.
