In Maya's bin directory there is a program, wrl2ma, that converts VRML 
files to Maya.  So you should be able to export VRML from chimera, run 
that conversion program, and import the result into Maya.  That should 
preserve the geometry.

There is also a turorial with more details on 
<http://www.molecularmovies.org/> on how to export molecular data to Maya: 

 	Good luck,
