Hello Christophe, merry Christmas, hope you are safe.
I am sorry but appears that there is some sort of miscommunication btw us.Reading in and creating p3d files in GMSH works well, bu that is not issue.Problem is once p3d wile is read in GMSH and then saved as NASTRAN bdf, GMSH does not recognize it as STRUCTURED mesh , thus whensame geometry previously saved as bdf is read in GMSH and tried to export as p3d, program is failing.
Issue is how to set GMSH to recognize structured mesh in NASTRAN format and then export it as p3d.
Cheers, and stay safe. Season greetings

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 .

Well actually I was wrong, and we do actually already keep track of the structured information in the reader.
// create p3d file
gmsh benchmarks/3d/sphere_in_cube_hexa.geo -3 -o a.p3d
// read it back and save it again
gmsh a.p3d -save -o b.p3d
Works fine with the latest Gmsh.
