Usage Scenario 3: Bidirectional Free-Form Modeling

To create a new CINEMA 4D Exchange object, use the File > Interoperability > CINEMA 4D Exchange > Create new element in CINEMA 4D Exchange command, available while working in the 3D window.
To edit elements, select them and use the Edit selected elements in CINEMA 4D Exchange command, available while working in the 3D window only.
By default, the commands are at the bottom of your Interoperability menu, but you can customize your work environment anytime.
Note: ARCHICAD will ask you to locate CINEMA 4D Exchange manually the first time you use it. This is a one-time-only question; ARCHICAD will remember this location later. If the location of CINEMA 4D Exchange changes on the computer (e.g. because of an upgrade), you can re-set the location using Remove CINEMA 4D Exchange preferences in the File > Interoperability > CINEMA 4D Exchange menu.
If you decide to cancel the CINEMA 4D Exchange editing process, you can click the “Break connection to CINEMA 4D Exchange” button in the synchronization dialog, but in this case you will not be able to get the model back from CINEMA 4D Exchange.
Important: If you start CINEMA 4D Exchange separately from ARCHICAD, don’t use the “Send back to ARCHICAD” command in CINEMA 4D Exchange. You can use the connection only if:
Note: For configuration options, see the Export Parameters section.
