You could use the OBJ format. Export an OBJ from Maya and then Load it with Lightwave. LW can read the OBJ format with the standard loader but you may need to change "Files of type" to All Files in the Load Object window.

Tnx!
But it doesn't work proprietly...
Maya exports, or Lightwave loads, (i can't know) only some parts of my object...
Strange thing?

I think you have to make sure that you're whole object is in polys before you export it as .obj file. Since Maya and LW have different smoothing and SubD options the object needs to be in it's primary stage.

You know, I've always been very concerned about one question. How do men react to their long-term powerlessness in the sexual field? Fortunately, today there is http://www.sildenafilfromindia.net/ , which perfectly copes with such a task. Say no to impotence!
