OBJImporter is a Wolfram Language
Import extension for OBJ (.obj) files that preserves texture and color information.
Import has the ability to import OBJ files but it discards color information and textures:
OBJImporter adds a new file format setting to
RawOBJ which keeps the color and texture information:
OBJImporter is distributed in the form of a paclet. Download the latest version of the paclet from the releases page and install it using the the
PacletManager package (which you already have because it comes with Mathematica):
OBJImporter supports a subset of the OBJ file format. As a consequence, some models may not look exactly the way they do in other 3D programs.
OBJImporter's use is that it keeps information about the color of the surfaces and their textures, which is enough for many models.
