In my laptop, I usually uses standalone ICEM CFD because it is easier to track the progress (I can save every step). However, in my university computer, I need the file to open in the workbench version. How to do it? Importing seems require Ansys Design Modeller's file, but not .icm files. Thank you!

I will describe what I believe you have to do step by step with photos.

The first step (image name step1) is you need to open Workbench, select the module of solver you want to use (I've chosen CFX) and right click on the geometry tab. Select 'Transfer Data to New' and select ICEM CFD. Right click on the new module tab (with the heading B on top and ICEM CFD on the bottom) that is created and hit edit.

Next, ICEM is now open. As per image 2 (step2), go to File -> Open Mesh and select your .uns file.
