Default .OBJ to Second Life Sculpted Prim (.Tga)

After Importing a .Obj file into AC3D and then exporting it as a .Tga I uploaded it to SL and then attempted to rez the sculpty... but the prim just goes crazy. SS below. What am I doing wrong? BTW the model is single piece of armor intended as a display model.

To make the Scultpy I: Rezzed a cube, set the "Building Block Type" to scultped and the selected the .Tga file. Is that wrong?

Hi Christophe. You need to re-map your obj so that the texture coordinates cover it as a single, continguous sheet.

There's a tutorial here that might help you:

You may also need to break your OBJ into one or more pieces, since the amount of resolution (I'm talking about the sharpness of detail, in this scenario) is rather limited with Second Life sculpts and one piece may not retain as much detail as one might prefer.
