Hey there. Sorry to hear that you're having trouble.

Is your problem specific to 3ds Max? Have you tried opening the .obj in another program?


A quick Google search brought me to these similar issues - and solutions:

If that doesn't solve your problem, try reaching out to the vendor here. Perhaps there may have been an issue with the product upload. 

If all else fails, feel free to send a message to Support here:  https://www.renderhub.com/info/contact-support  


I hope you get it sorted out.
