After some research online I found a very nice workflow with unity and lightwave. Basicly the best way to make a trial and error level design is to use the primitives Unity3d alredy have or custom objects modeled in your 3d suite and mount the level with your tiles.

First Problem: Ok, you have a beautiful level but you must redraw it in your 3d app if you want to refine it.

Second Problem: with thousand blocks you will have a thousand drawcalls and it will become heavy.

The solution is to use the built in "Combine Children" but doing this you will not be able to bake a lightmap.

The solution I found was to export the entire level in just 1 .obj with this free script:

I hope it will be usefull, here it is saving lots of time.
