I'm an architecture student trying to design a virtual world with fbx's made from recap360.

The problem is when I try to import another fbx in the same scene. The first scene gets overwritten by the second mesh while opening.

Is there a possibility to import multiple fbx's in one scene instead of overwriting the last scene when you import a new fbx?enter image description here

Thanks in advance!

    Click on the square next to file > import menuitem for more import options. But yeah sure it can be done.

It looks like you are not importing but opening the scene by dragging the file directly into Maya. Go to File > Import. It should automatically rename your mesh when the same name already exists.

If there is still a problem try to look at "namespace". I would like to notice also quite similar - File > Reference. Then you can update the file... It is another episode.
