How to import OBJ and MTL

post originally from Espen Færavaag da Silva

I’m sure it’s a simple solution, but I can’t for the life of me import an OBJ file with the MTL file. I have tried both cloud import and directly putting them in the device, either both files separately or in a zipped file. Whatever I do, only the OBJ file shows up and it does not have any textures… Any tips?

I figured it out! MTL files only tell you where to find the textures, they don’t actually include the textures. I needed to adjust the export settings of Blender (my preferred 3D editor) by setting “path mode” to “copy” to actually create duplicates of the textures in the exported directory. I then zipped them all together and uploaded to the cloud.
