Default ICEM CFD integration w/ workbench

Relatively new to ANSYS, i've been using ICEM CFD to mesh a STL geometry and gained a good idea of how to do it.

I have my workflow set up as ICEM CFD -> Finite element modeler -> static structural to do my analysis. Is there any way to use ICEM CFD in a different workflow method with static structural? Or would it be better to use ansys meshing instead (I find it difficult to import the STL geometry into design modeler).

I want to be able to set up parameters so I can batch process/automate a few models with different BC/loads.

Kind of worked out a solution, thought i would post here incase anyone else has troubles.

I imported the STL model into ICEM CFD, edit -> facets to mesh. Using this mesh I created a volume mesh (to create a solid body, otherwise the geometry only create surfaces). From there I saved the mesh (.uns) and imported that into FE modeller into workbench. From there you can link it to static structural by using skin compontents, creating initial geometry and convert to parasolid (which failed for my STL model of an aorta).

Link the FE system to static structural either through geometry (parasolid) or model (mesh). I was able to open the model in static structural, delete the mesh and remesh it using ansys meshing. Now I can set up parameters and solve quite quickly
