Anisotropic thermal conductivity in cylinder

 I am interested in running a thermal simulation in CFX on a cylinder. The cylinder has anisotropic thermal conductivity, i.e. three different values of thermal conductivity in radial, axial and circumferential directions. The CFX-Pre GUI does not seem to have the ability to input anisotropic thermal conductivity of materials. Can someone please help me figure out how to do this?

I assume as ASC you have access to the customer portal where a solution for that. Anisotropic properties can only be defined as CCL by editing the material properties and not as GUI selection
