Is there a way to extract mesh co-ordinates for a mesh created in Ansys workbench ? I need to use the co-ordinates of the node points for other applications.

One way to do that is to use the export function:
File -> export -> export...
and then select the variables X,Y,Z

Ya simply exporting the mesh data in .poly format and reading on notepad works.

Instead of setting boundary conditions for surfaces as a whole, I need to set temperature for individual nodes. Is thr a way ? I have extracted the x,y,z co-ordinates of all the nodes.

You can use a user function in CFX. You enter the temperature value at certain points and CFX interpolates the values in between. You can even import the data from your .csv file.
