Hey, is there any way to have maya update an imported item? Like if I edit a cube that was imported in to another sence, is ther some way that I can have maya update it?

Thanks in advance,

You can do what's called referencing. Instead of File > Export, you'd use File > Create Reference. I don't have a lot of experience with it, but I think this is what you want.
