You can import a PATRAN Neutral file using the following menu

->File

->Import

->Mesh

Then specififying the type as PATRAN and Dimension as either 2D-planar surface mesh, 3D-volume mesh or 3D-Surface mesh. You must also specify a featuring angle.

Good Luck

You will need to generate a PATRAN neutral file before you can import it into fluent/gambit. This acan be done inside PATRAN using the /file/export menu.
