 How you make watertight files using 3DS MAX?

 We use 3D Studio Max for our realtime VR and RP models, best texturing availible (IMHO) and good VRML 1 and 2 output. 3Matic and the new version of Magics have more texturing features I think, and there is ZPrint (version with 7.4 is more sophisticated).
