FumeFX is described as 'powerful fluid dynamics plugin for Autodesk 3ds max and Maya, designed for simulation and rendering of realistic fire, smoke, explosions and other gaseous phenomena'. There are seven alternatives to FumeFX for Windows, Autodesk 3ds Max and iPad. The best alternative is Autodesk 3ds Max. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try Demolition Master. Other great apps like FumeFX are 3DSimED (Paid), RayFire (Paid), Pulldownit Pro (Paid) and Thinking Particles (Paid).
3DSimED is a Windows DirectX application allowing the creation and visualization of models from many racing sim formats. Models can be exported to Assetto Corsa, Automobilista, rFactor 2 (and 1), GTR2, Race 07, GTL, N2003 and many other games.
Demolition Master is a 3dsmax tool based on Thinking Particles for make quick, and easy destructions. I provide a 3dsmax scene, with Demolition Master on it, all debries already connected and FumeFx setup.
