Thread: OBJ Groups to Parts

    OBJ Groups to Parts

    Shouldn't LW Modeler (I'm using 9.5, Build 1445, Aug. 2008) convert the groups in an .obj file into polygon parts when it does an import?

    In scrolling thru the .obj file I can clearly see the different named groups, but when it comes into LW there are no polygon parts.

    Anyone know what's going on? Thanks.

    If you save the obj as a lwo, then open the lwo in modeler.
    The groups will now be listed as parts (in polygon statistics) for the lwo.

    Groups are associated with obj's/ parts are associated with lwo.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks. Yeah, I had already tried that, and the .lwo, when imported into Modeller, didn't show any parts either.

    Okay. Strange as you are correct in your first post saying that modeler should convert the groups in an .obj file into polygon parts when it does an import.

    I'm not using 9.5 - still on 9.3, and no problems loading obj's here. You should post your original question in 9.5 discussions and someone will probably be able to help.
