Export both surface and solid mesh

Export both surface and solid mesh

Export both surface and solid mesh

I need to export a mesh from a step file using Patran. The problem is that i need both the domain elements (CTETRA4) and the boundary elements (CTRIA3) :
This is the kind of file that I need : https://github.com/victorsndvg/FEconv/blob/master/...
It would be great if i could get the numbers of the solid/faces in the bdf file.
I dont need anything else than the geometry.
I precise that I am a beginner (started Patran yesterday)

Thanks for reading,
Sorry for my english.
