Does Sketchfab support modified (weighted) vertex normals?

Does sketchfab support modified vertex normals?
I mean such normals which was got with 3ds max scripts like a “Weighted Normals”. Or normals which was modified manualy.
For better understanding what I mean:

Hello,

If you upload a model with valid vertex normals, they will be preserved. If we detect issues with normals or they don’t exist, we will recalculate them during processing.

Hello James,
Does Weighted Normals considered by Sketchfab engine as valid normals?

I’m not sure I understand exactly what “weighted” means. Have you tried uploading something?

I mean weighted or simply modified with “Edit Normals” modifier in 3dsMax- for example. Does edited Normals direction will be saved in Sketchfab?
maybe I will make little test soon with two cubes
Now I make one model with weighted normals and not sure how they will be work in Sketchfab

I tested this now. Modified normals entirely saved by Sketchfab

Cool!
