Hi,

If the direct export from ArchiCAD to OBJ (using save as obj) does not generate a correct (uv-mapped) obj file, the you can use an alternative by saving the scene to sketchup and then in Sketchup use the octanerender exporter.
I use this step with good results.
(The exporter you can find somewhere in the Sketchup section of this forum)

Cheers,
