OBJ importer using existing material

Hi everyone

I’ve juste seen this thread :

It could be very usefull for me (updating my 3d model) but when I try to use it there is lot’s of error.
Does anyone know if there is any update of this addon? (I have send a message to the author)
By the do you thinks the same thing is able in the ifc importer? or .3ds importer?

This fonction could be very usefull for people who does the modeling in another software. (like me with archicad)
