Combine same named objects

There's also a different OBJ importer available for Cinema4D called Riptide here:

It doesn't seem to split these objects with the same name up either though, but it will also import materials from OBJ files so when using the Riptide plugin for doing the import style colors that you assigned in MoI come through into C4D.
