Anyone know how to do this? I'm not having much luck.

Open collada is your friend.

[edit] didn't read your title properly. I'm not sure about phoenix FD. You and your bloody obscure programs lately.

Apparently in Maya you can't export the mesh out. It's fine though, I'll work around it.

PhoenixFD/Maya/Vray/Deadline - Not that obscure. ;)

This might be of help:

Or perhaps not...

Sounds like they just added this feature in the most recent nightly. Also I've been working with one of the developers to have him fix a bug that was inhibiting me from blending two materials together on the fluid mesh (why I wanted to export as a mesh to do a work around).

All gooooood. Thanks.

After learning that hardly no render farms support Phoenix for Maya 2016 yet.. I was forced to revisit trying to extract the mesh from Phoenix... Found a solution after thinking about it for a while. Made a video to help others. Good thing this is a forum for 3ds Max or this Maya video would be totally useless to the community, ha-

This is why all 3rd party rendering services suck... except for mine.

But then again, like that of many men out there with ED; I too couldn't get it up (in time).
