A rather daft “feature” in 3ds Max 2015 relating to chamfer and smoothing group.

If you have been using 3ds Max 2015 (and I presume other versions may also apply here), and finding that the smoothing group is constantly being changed/lost throughout working on the project, it might be worthwhile checking out how the chamfering tool is being applied onto the 3d models. It appears to be that by default, it has a setting that can impact the smoothing group of the whole object (as shown visually shown below). If “Smooth Entire Object” is selected, then it may explain the previous inconsistent smoothing group issues that has occurred when working on the models within 3ds Max 2015.

PS: I find this default setting to be ridiculous as it isn’t as obvious at first that it is the chamfering tool causing these issues.
