Surfaces Not Showing in Hotlinked Modules

I've got  site file that I then hotlink in several buildings. Usually this works fine, however, now the surface materials on the walls of the buildings aren't showing on the hotlinked modules. Slabs, roofs, etc. all the other elements seem to show the correct surface material.

Can you show a few screenshots, like how it looks and how it is supposed to look?

Im having the same issue.

Building embedded as a .pln module surfaces on walls not appearing correctly, it shows the core material, on some wall surfaces.

 

The file alone in 3D, not embedded, surfaces are fine.

Any words of wisdom?  I've replaced the elements, offset them, and refreshed them many times.  Checked all the model view and structure view settings.

I wondered about attribute IDs, but they're the same model to model, and why would it be only some walls?

Any feedback is appreciated.

If I save the model as a .gsm, and insert it as an object, surfaces appear fine.  The issue with that is I lose layer control and embedded Enscape assets (objects) disappear.

If the modules are inserted into a new file, everything works.  Perhaps rebuilding the entire model, copy and paste might be fix.

If these are composite walls, did you check that those match too? And remember, they go by ID# not name.

They all sync up as well; materials, composites, surfaces, all the same IDs
