    I tried to import a obj file into blender but this is what it says: Error! Pyton Script Error check console

    here is what the console says:

    importing obj "C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\ Blender\firstmap.OBJ"
    passing obj file "C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\firstmap.OBJ"... 5.4064 sec
    loading materials and images... 0.0005 sec
    building geometry...
    verts: 0 faces:131072 materials: 1 smoothgroups: 0 ...
    Traceback <most recent call last>:
    File "<string>", line 831, in load_obj_ui
    File "<string>", line 718, in load_obj
    File "<string>", line 303, in split_mesh

    Use an older version of blender - they seem to work ok. PM me & I'll send my backup.

    importing .obj files should be no problem.\I do it all the time.
    it works fine for Blender 2.45.
    The most likely cause is Python is not also installed.
    So in Blender 2.5 install Python 2.5.1, (for windows) that should fix the problem.
    Other problems may be within the .obj file itself. (too many verts, incomplete/corrupted mesh/file.)
    other than that, download the latest version of Blender & Python for your os & go from there.

    Here is your problem
    "verts: 0 faces:131072 materials: 1 smoothgroups: 0 ..."
    verts - 0 - the faces need to use verts. you could post your obj file.

    I figured out it is the obj file. the obj file generator does not work correctly
