If you find yourself changing modifier parameters to the same same values over and over again, make your life easier and use the same modifier with preset values instead.

Additional Info: 

Installation: The .ms file can be run from any location (Maxscript -> Run Script...).

Usage: With the modifier of your choice selected in the modifier stack and its values set to your liking, run the script, input new modifier name (for example ChamferRound for a Chamfer preset) and press the Create button. A text window will pop up with a script with the current values pre-filled (all the lines beginning with the delegate. string). You can tweak it if you want, drop some of them or leave it as it is and save it as a .ms file.

To try it out first, use the Test button and the modifier should appear in the modifier list. If you plan to use it from the modifier list or global search only, saving the file to your scripts\startup folder will be enough, if you want to be able to use it in the modifier sets panel, place the .ms file instead inside the plugins folder in the 3ds max root folder.
