  Click the icon or plugin name to download it.
creased pillar  smooth pillar
All models export as smooth.  Creasing is simulated by adding geometry at the crease lines.
The plugin has the following limitations:

Max of 32 textures. 
No glued objects.
The selected object must be made of only triangles.
It must have at least one texture map applied to it.
All geometry will export as a single smoothing group(3dsmax talk for "it will be smooth").
The texture filename(s) will be the only material information exported.

All extra (triangulated) geometry in the scene will export as part of the selected mesh and they will not export with any material information(they will share the first material of the selected object).
Mesh is exported in centimeter scale.
