As title. It is fine if the solution needs other third-party software as a bridge.

what do you think can OF do with this .db file?
As far as I know .db files contain the mesh, BCs and the solution.

You only have 2 options:
- exporting a geometry file to use it with sHM
- exporting a mesh file and convert it with fluentToFoam
