To import STL and define properties, please take a look at the following code.
model = createpde('thermal','steadystate');
gm = importGeometry(model,'SquareBeam.STL');
thermalProperties(thermalmodel,'ThermalConductivity',[80;10;80]) %for orthotropic thermal conductivity
Also, Please take a look at these community answers ( Link 1, Link 2, Link 3)for your support.
Hope it helps.
