That's because what you make/see in AC3D is *not* a sculptie. The export plugin does its best to convert it to a sculptie map, basically by wrapping a texture around the object based on its UV-map, and translating that to colors, which SL interprets as XYZ-coordinates. (there is a link in this thread to a tutorial by Lisa which explains it much better)
... currently there is no modelling program that can produce a sculptie that looks -exactly- like the original model, unless the model in ac3d (or any other program for that matter) is created from the bottom up with the exact specs an SL sculptie adheres to, or if you're a genius at rearranging the UV-coordinates.


(there are programs that produce what-you-see-is-what-you-get sculpties, like Rokuro and SculptiePaint, but they are so limited that I wouldn't call them modelling apps).
