Ugly faces in Showcase from FBX exported from Max 2014

As you can see in the attached picture, I don't get plain faces when I import a FBX from MAX.

Any ideas what I have done wrong?

You need to use FBX 2013 version when exporting from Max 2014. Watch this video:

At 2m56, I am getting the same result as you are getting.. Watch the complete video to understand how to export and FBX 2013.

This was the problem, thank you. FBX2013 fixed it.

Do you mean baked shadows that you did in 3ds Max Design? It should not.. but then again.. without visual, it's hard to know what is going on.
