This is an example of a basic Maya Fluid into McNeel’s Grasshopper Plugin. There is an expression acting on the Fluid to export out points based on fluid vector magnitudes. Grasshopper is reading this text file via a vb.net component. This is made possible by Giulio Piacentino’s “The Engine” and “renderAnimation” nodes (http://www.giuliopiacentino.com/grasshopper-tools/#more-1033 ). I added a txt file reader to get the fluid information into Grasshopper.

Stay tuned for more examples and vb.net components which make this possible.
