I'm afraid not. Technical documentation about ART is very sparse actually, not enough for the implementation we need.
I hope it can be done in the future, once Autodesk releases more information and code samples.

Is there any update to the status of the ART renderer? I just found out that max 2018 will not include Mental Ray. There is no possibility for me to license a render engine for all the nodes in my render farm. I am facing the possibility of either sticking with max 2017 and mental ray, or continue with max 2018 and transition to the ART renderer. However, forest pro is an essential piece of software for me. If you do not support the ART renderer then I really have no path forward with 3ds max.

Thanks,
Kai

I'm sorry but nothing changes in Max 2018. Currently we're unable to support ART renderer because the lack of documentation.

I could not even to find if ART supports instancing or not, which is a must for our plugins.
