.OBJ import loses textures


I have a few .obj files that I want to import but when I do all the textures are lost. They do seem to have separate .mtl files (material?) that might contain the answer but there is no option  to select them in Vectorworks.


Anyone got any ideas?

The OBJ and MTLs are in the same folder when you go to import (not a compressed folder)? Were they ever renamed at any point? 

I have submitted a few of these cases to engineering and sometimes it comes back that the proper MTL file was not included, if you can post or send me the folder or OBJ file I can confirm what MTL files it is expecting.
