Particulary getting partical-information imported and transformed into maya?

Very interesting question.
But I am afraid the answer is NO

I ve been experimenting myself with CFX but the hardest thing of all is the fact that MAYA still CANNOT built import or even understand an actual grid.
The containers, which is the equiveland, are made of points WHICH MUST BE EQUALLY SPACED WITH EACH OTHER. All the real fluid dynamics programs create flexible shaped grids for the outmost accuracy and adequet efficiency.

On the other hand Maya needs to be as fast as possible (even real time fast) but also easy to use as it is intented for artists and not aerodynamic enginneers.
