Hi Janot,

We can read Nastran files into Mechanical using External Model, but we no longer export Nastran files. We import the Nastran bulk data deck in Mechanical (via External Model) but do not export it.

Please refer to this Ansys knowledge material: How to write Nastran bulk data deck (bdf)? – Ansys Knowledge

Also to know more about how to import Nastran files to Ansys workbench, please search for “Taking NASTRAN Input Files Into ANSYS Mechanical via External Model in ANSYS” in Google. Relevant links will show up which contain all the information that you seek.
