Just load it. LightWave will load OBJ files automatically. If you are using LW8, it will be visible when you ask to load an object, if you are using a version prior, you might need to change the filter from Object to Show all files...

Hi Ben, long time no speak.

I'm sure you can fix that in a text file somewhere for earlier versions. I don't have grep on windows to find it now though :(

Marious.

You can indeed, I was just saying that it had been done in LW8, it wasn't in previous, although you can do it yourself. There's a line in your LW3.cfg file that reads:

FileType Objects *.lwo

Change that to:

FileType Objects *.lwo, *.obj, *.3ds, *.dxf

and then you won't need to change to "Show all files"
