hi...
you can save as file like IGES,STEP format then import it on GAMBIT.
it will open on GAMBIT.

there used to be a add-on that you could download from either SW or Fluent's site that helped with the importing. But, I have always found it easier to import a 3-d model from SW and then erase lines to make it a 2d model in fluent.
