The file you're trying to import has the extension .obj.py. It is not a .obj so you can't import it like a normal object. Go into the text editor view in blender, Press Alt + O, or go to Text>Open Text Block and open the .py file, then simply press Run script or press Alt+p

  • $\begingroup$ the file isn't showing in the text editor? im working with Mac if that makes any difference? $\endgroup$ – James Jan 8 at 14:38
  • $\begingroup$ I'm unsure where you're running into a problem. Without your file I can't reproduce this to assist you. $\endgroup$ – Charles Pettis Jan 8 at 14:41
  • $\begingroup$ I added file link if u wanna take a look? $\endgroup$ – James Jan 8 at 14:45
  • $\begingroup$ @James I'm able to import your file with no problems. It may be your Blender installation. You're going to File->Import->Wavefront(.obj), choosing your file and importing it , correct? This works for me. $\endgroup$ – Charles Pettis Jan 8 at 14:51
  • $\begingroup$ yeah doing exactly that. Although when I select both the .obj and .mtl file it imports but I cannot see the model in the viewport? thanks for ur help btw! $\endgroup$ – James Jan 8 at 14:58
