Exporting Mesh from Pointwise to ANSYS FLUENT

I am very new to pointwise 17 and I am trying to learn how to use it using tutorials.
I have created a 2D mesh grid using one of the Tutorials and I want to export it to the ANSYS FLUENT now. I have read many posts and help of the pointwise, but I guess those wasn't clear for me.
Can you please explain how to export it from pointwise to ANSYS Fluent? (like you are explaining to a dumb)
As what file type should I save it in Pointwise?
Where exactly do I import in ANSYS Fluent?

Next, once you are finished with your mesh you will want to set the boundary conditions specific to ANSYS Fluent on the edges of your 2-D domain(s). Select Set Boundary Conditions... also in the CAE menu. This opens the Set BC panel. Here you can create new boundary conditions with the New button, give them descriptive names by double-clicking in the name field and typing in a new name, and then set their type from the pull-down list that appears when you double-click the CAE Type field.
Once you have created the new boundary condition, you will want to select the edges of your domain(s) that correspond to that boundary condition type which you have just created in either the Display window or List panel. Once you have selected these edges, then click the check box next to the boundary condition's name listed in the Set BC panel to apply that boundary condition to the selected edges. You will see that the number next to the check box should update to indicate the number of edges to which this boundary condition has been applied.
Once you have applied all of your boundary conditions for Fluent in this manner, then you can exit the Set BC panel by clicking OK. One last thing you will want to do for 2-D meshes that consist of multiple domains is that their normals are all aligned. To do this, select all of your domains using either the Display window or List panel, and select Orient... from the Edit menu. This opens the Orient panel which will look and behave differently depending on whether you're working with structured or unstructured domains. Use this short YouTube video to help you orient your domains appropriately.
Lastly, you will export your mesh to an ANSYS Fluent case file (*.cas) which can be read-in by Fluent. Select all of the domains that you wish to export from either the Display window or List panel, and then from the File menu select CAE... from the Export sub-menu. An Open/Save dialog window will open where you can provide a name and location for where you want to save the *.cas file on your local filesystem. Click Save to save the *.cas file. This file can be imported directly into Fluent. Hope this helps
