Hello Sheheryar Khan,
The error occurs, because properties and materials don't exist in your mesh. But you can that repair. Simple you should making materials and properties after importing mesh, and using Modify / Update Elements / Property ID... command you can associate properties to elements. See the resultat in the attachement (I made a steel solid property).
Element 42 entry in your BDF file (here element 42 don't have any property):
CPENTA 42 0 3577 3576 3548 3578 3580 3579
Element 42 entry in my exported BDF file (here element 42 has property ID1):
CPENTA 42 1 3577 3576 3548 3578 3580 3579
Thnx for your time.
Yes i chcked my mesh and geomtry model i was not assigning properties and material to my mesh.

Thnx again for your help.
