I have a 3DS Max model of an inhaler which is made up of two parts, the actuator and the cap. When I export the file as a .obj file the cap and the actuator are classed as 1 part.

How do I export this as a .obj file that recognises the actuator and the cap as being separate objects?

  • Questions about 3D are really only limited to composition as it pertains to design. Technical questions are off-topic. – Luciano Jul 5 '17 at 14:50
  • I do not think there is much you can do about how the exporter and any subsequent importer works. Write your own exporter. – joojaa Jul 6 '17 at 6:46

I found a solution by converting the source file on this site: https://clara.io/ Object did not separate geometry, but you can give a name to different "OBJ Groups". I advice to you export in FBX format if you want to get different meshes insted just one.
