According to this, it seems not:

However, perhaps the page is out of date or someone has found a work around for animated models?

For animation, no. The available .SMD exporters don't work past 9.5.

However, if you need to make static props w/o collision meshes, you can export to obj, and studiomdl.exe can process those directly (as of Orange Box).
