Question Exporting a OBJ file from Maya

Hi, I have created a nurbs sphere and tried saving it as a OBJ file. But when I try and import it back (just to test that I can do this) I get no error message, but when I look in the "outliner" I do not see any object. I have been successful with importing DFX and 3DS files. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

What is the error? I've done it and don't have any problems...

Question how did you imported the 3DS files? you convert them first to OBJ right?

Hi, On the OBJ, I get no error, but I also do not see anything oject(s) in the outliner. When I've imported 3DS I used the plugin from Maya, and it works fine, though I did need to expand the far clipping range of the camera to find them (some objects) due to scaling issue with them. Also I made sure to have the OBJexport plugin loaded, and I exported just a NURBS sphere, and tried to import it back in, no luck same thing, is there a limitation to only being able to import polys and can not import NURBS? Thanks ver much for your time.
