Hi there, I downloaded the above mentioned program but when I import to sketchup pro 2018 I have no materials, would anyone be able to shed any light for me? I have attached the OBJ File and the materials file. Many Thanks in advance,

Hello Nick,

OBJ is one of the simple file formats.
Material is defined using a second file (*.mtl) that goes with the obj fiel
mtl file defines colors and textures.

following is the mtl file you sent

newmtl wire_204204204
Ns 32
d 1
Tr 0
Tf 1 1 1
illum 2
Ka 0.8000 0.8000 0.8000
Kd 0.8000 0.8000 0.8000
Ks 0.3500 0.3500 0.3500

it does not reference any texture file.

So the issue is with the exporter.

Please check the exporter parameters
