-mAx- will become famous soon enough
you can try to export from Autocad an Iges file (or step file if available)
Then import it into Gambit and not Fluent

You can export files as *.sat or *.stl but then you will need to transform the geometries to mass properties (command in autoCAD)... and it is difficult.... try using Solidworks or other software like Rhino.... from there it is easy...
