Exporting Dimension 2.3 file as .obj fail?

In our production workflow here at work, we want to be able to move .obj files from Autocad Inventor to Adobe Dimension and vice versa.  However, when I export an .obj file from Dn 2.3, it creates an unrecognizable, and unusable version of the Dn file.

This is the case regardless of whether I export a scene, or selected models. Even a very simple file. Same result.

As an example, here is a screenshot of a simple scene, comprised of 4 cubes:

Here is a screenshot of that scene, exported as an obj:

And here is the .obj, imported into the original Dn file. You can see it picks up the materials data, otherwise, it's useless:

Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi Marty,

That does not sound good, let's make it right.

Could you please check this conversation and let us know if it helps?

Hi Sahil,

Thank you I checked the conversation. However, it wasn't helpful.

The conversation suggests .obj export settings for Rhino modeling software. But nothing about .obj export settings for Adobe Dimension.

Does Dimension have similar settings for .obj exporting? I would explore them, but don't see them anywhere.

yes its a known bug in the way Dn exports files and the forums are full of examples so its not just you

fix = not yet sorry, more testing was needed

p.s, Dimension will give best results from wavefront Obj files... my tip workflow is to import Obj files into Photoshop first and then export them as wavefront Obj for use in Dimension... ime this offen repairs the ui map which tends to be the underlinning issue
