Hey everyone,

I'm new to Hexagon 2.5. I have extensive knowledge in Max, but decided to try out Hexagon. Is there a way to create smoothing groups in hexagon? I'm creating a simple wall panel that needs to be smoothed evenly on all sides and front, but it's not on the bottom... and causing my normal maps to bake funky.

    Hexagon does not have a specific smoothing groups function, but you can exclude and area from being smoothed by using the surface tools, smoothing function, bezier interpolation, partial smoothing and selecting the polys you want smoothed. Caveat is that this will cause n-gons at the interface between the smoothed and unsmoothed facets.

    From your description, this doesn't seem to be what you are looking for.

    Perhaps some pics would help to find a solution :)
