Importing problems

I have been trying to import an obj file to Blender and it will import the object into the collection but nothing is actually there. What do I do?

It’s possible that’s it’s just scaled really small- try selecting the object in the outliner and pressing . On your number pad to zoom to it

Hello and welcome to BlenderArtists.

It's possible that your OBJ file might be corrupted with Blender's OBJ importer. This can be caused if the OBJ file was exported initially from a different 3D creation software such as Maya.

On a corrupted import, there should be some generated error messages in your Blender’s Terminal Console. You can open that terminal by going to:

Info Editor → Window → Toggle System Console

I tryed to do that and it just zooms into nothing
