I have recently moved over to Cinema 4D from 3DS Max and I am having trouble with something that was pretty basic in 3DS. I use C4D to produce visualisations from engineers drawings so it is quite important to get dimensions accurate. In 3DS if I wanted to clone an object and place it 1000mm away from the original I would just right click, select clone, then type 1000 in the relevant axis and press enter. However in C4D I have not been able to figure out how to do the same process. Right now I am dragging the object holding CTRL and placing the item manually roughly at the right distance. This is ok but ideally I would like to get these distances precise. Am I missing something really obvious or is it not possible to do this in C4D?
Any help would be really useful.
