Which is the recommended geometry format as an input for creating a mesh and then for performing an Ansys Fluid Flow Simulation with CFX?

Which Meshing tool should be used to start a Pre-Processing with Ansys CFX Flow Simulation? Icem CFD is not included in student version. The Mesh Tool (as included in the Workbench for Fluid Flow Simulation) is appropriate tool for CFX? In tutorials/user's guide of the Meshing tool I only find references for the use with Fluent.

Thank you in advance.

Please go ahead with SpaceClaim as geometry and Meshing as meshing tool
