Smooting applied when clicjking on 'Boolean'


When I create an octagonal 'cylinder' in GMAX and turn off the 'smooth' checkbox, then create a box that I want to cut out of the 'cylinder', as soon as I click on the 'boolean' button (after selecting 'Compound Objects'), the 'cylinder' gets smooth edges again. It takes me a while playing with the smoothing group buttons to get rid of this again, and I don't even know how I achieve this :) . Perhaps someone has some advice on how to avoid that falling back to smooth edges.

Thanks, that was almost it ! Once I did this and then selected the entire object (so that all polygons were selected, i.e. marked red) and added a 'Smooth' modifier to the stack, it looked OK again.
