    Anyway to import OBJ with surface?

    The title says it all, Just spent a while building and surfacing a model in Zbrush, Now Ive brought it into lightwave.. And as I expected the surfaces are all gone and I have to redo them in Lightwave, if I want to get back to Zbrush and edit something? then I have to rebuild the surfaces in lightwave again...
    Or do I?
    Is there some way to bring in OBJ's with surfaces? Or some way to transfer between zbrush and lightwave with surfacing that im unaware of?

    Im a big fan of zbrush and an even bigger fan of lightwave so im hoping someone can throw me some info on this, perhaps im missing something? or maybe a plug in?

    Thanks for all help as always, Im sure im not the only one that believes lightwave would be dead and buried a long time ago if it wasn't for these forums (online tutorials seems to have died out about 9.6)

    If you are running 11.5 or up you should be able to use the built-in tool GOZ.

    Make sure you include the mtl file. OBJ does not store surface information.

    If there is no .MTL file then the surfaces will not cross over with it.
