However I have noticed that GMSH  ( version 4.5.6 ) perfectly read p3d files and exporting them to NASTRAN format bdf, but when tried to convert very same file back to Plot3D format, error message pops up .

Indeed, currently when we read structured meshes we import them as general unstructured grids. The P3D reader could be changed to keep track of the structured information. Maybe open an issue on the gitlab to keep track of this feature request?
