Since the chamfer modifier was first implemented in 3ds Max 2015 you can't use "Apply Chamfer" and the other functions based on chamfer modifier in any version before 3ds Max 2015.The rest of the script should run fine though. This tool was tested in 3DS Max 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019 and 2020 on a Windows 64 bit machine.
v1.2 - 03/11/2019: - Now handle curves way better (chamfers with more than one segment): flat surfaces adjacent to the curves now have their normals perpendicular when clicking "Compute normals". Make sure the chamfer modifier with one segment is on top.
- Select faces by weight improved when using chamfer modifiers: now select flat surfaces only , hold CTRL to select flat surfaces and curves.
- Now update chamfer options of the selected objects when changing the radio buttons and holding CTRL or SHIFT (All edges, Unsmoothed, Selected).
- No longer remove poly select modifier from stack after clicking "Compute selected faces".- Undoing after changing chamfer size in the tool no longer require pressing CTRL + Z multiple times.
- Fixed button text for "Compute selected faces", "Poly select" and "Faces by weight" in 3DS Max 2017.
