Multimaterial Topology Optimization (MM-TO) in ANSYS?

Hello everyone.

Is ANSYS capable of doing a multimaterial topology optimization? I want to simulate a metal-cfk body and ANSYS should make a gradient-based TO of metal, CFK and void. The aim is to generate a homogenous transition of the different stiffnesses and properties of the two materials. The two pictures below should help to understand the problem. How do I assign Multimaterial properties to a geometry, which tools and material data do I need?

I hope you understand the question and I would be very thankful for every answer.
