Files with obj suffix can be found as common 3d objects saved using various 3D modeling and CAD modeling tools.
There are 2 other file types using
the OBJ file extension!
.obj - Intel (Object Module Format) relocatable object module
.obj - Microsoft Visual Studio object

What is obj file? How to open obj files?
File type specification:
File extension obj is commonly used for a standardized files that contain 3D objects. This extension is used by various 3D graphic programs for universal object format.
Back in the mid 1980s a UNIX program called "Wavefront Visualizer" was created which used many different ASCII file formats to move 3D data from one module to another (this was before modern user interfaces were developed) - OBJ was used to convey the geometry data and MTL used to convey the material information. All of those sub-file formats became obsolete over time. However, in the early 1990s, Okino, Viewpoint, Alias and Wavefront Corp. came to bring the OBJ and MTL file formats back from the dead of the old Wavefront Visualizer days of the mid 1980s. OBJ + MTL files are "acceptable" for transferring basic mesh data, but the OBJ file format will not allow for the conversion of any hierarchy information, complex materials, lights, cameras, animation, meta data, skinning, etc. The OBJ file format is also verbose ASCII so it can end up creating large files.
Usually a simple data-format that represents only the 3D geometry, such as the position of each vertex, the texture coordinate associated with a vertex, the normal at each vertex, and the faces that make each polygon. Sometimes also known as Wavefront 3D objects.

Autodesk Maya is application used to 3D modeling, animating and rendering. Maya is used by graphics in film and television, for video game developing and design visualization. Maya is developed for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
