I got all models loaded and made sure that I was not hiding anything in "View Configuration" or that all my opacities are set at a 100%. Most 3D bodies show up, however some are missing.

Two things :

  • If I manually place a component in PCB view, the 3D model of this component will show up, however not the exact same component that was loaded from the schematics. See first picture
  • If I open the "Design > Import changes from [Project Name]", while in the dialog, all models show up. See second picture

What am I doing wrong ?

This can happen if a component has been edited in the library, but has not been refreshed in the schematic editor, ie the schematic still thinks it has the old symbol. When placed directly into the PCB, libraries are up to date.

In your PCB, right-click on a component and select Component Actions > Updated Selected Components from PCB Libraries

enter image description here

This will check for differences and perform an ECO that you can accept. If there is a difference, the action would be to modify, which you can accept, or execute
