Patterns from UV Maps

I am having trouble with importing a pattern in obj-format.

In the Object Type section, I select -
Load as Garment > Trace 2D Patterns from UV Map

But nothing happens. As i import the same file without tracing patterns from UV map, it works perfectly, but of course, then I am without the patterns and not able to sew! :( What to do. I created the pattern in Blender according to Loris advices. Is there a bug in MD9 version 5.1.330? :(

There isn't anything wrong with MD, I've been doing quite a bit of testing lately bringing in OBJ files created out of Blender. There must be something else going on.

I've attached a file for you to test. I had to zip it to include in the posting here. Just unzip the file and use FrontBodiceBlenderOutput.obj.

I just ran it myself successfully. Select File > Import (Add). Here are the import settings to MD:

If this works, you know that the problem is with your OBJ. Did you make sure to UV unwrap your pattern before saving as and OBJ?
