exported obj file not visible

I developed a Sword in Blender then exported as a wavefront obj. Wrote a cr2 which appears to work in both Poser 9 and DAZ Studio 4.5 but no figure appears. I tried importing a working obj then exporting it back overwriting the original obj after that the figure no longer appears. Is there a setting I am not using or setting right?

Could it be a layer issue? Sometimes when I import a model it appears on another layer that is not visible initially.
