Not sure how useful this will be for everyone else, but I've been trying to find a script that will make use of the autosmooth function but will limit it to a range of smoothing groups (normally the closest available group to number 1)
- For example, if I make a selection and use this script, it will autosmooth using groups 25-32 (or 17-20 for that matter).
I do this manually to make material ID selection quicker when I know certain polygons will need to be mapped to a particular ID. Anything in that range gets a particular ID.
Again, not sure how useful anyone else will find this but if someone has something similar or wouldn't mind writing something up, I would be grateful :)
