You can't do modeling in Lumion but we rely on the modeling software you use. This is how it works:
1) Export model
2) Import model in Lumion
3) Apply materials, create scene in Lumion
4) Go back to modeling package and move geometry or delete
5) Export model using same filename as before
6) In lumion click import mode, click to edit materials and click reload button on the right
The reload button reloads the model so you you can use any modeling package in the background to modify a model you already have. Lumion is smart enough to reapply all the changes you made since you imported the model so you keep all settings.
Note that there's a bug when you delete parts of you models so the materials might get messed up. If you move geometry it works fine though. We will soon have an update which fixes this.
