Color overrides 'material' from some piping elements, only in assembly.

Hi all,

 

I have a drawing with piping, I've given all the parts a material and tested it in the wame drawing with a render, giving perfect results, how I'd expect it.

If I Xref (or even import as a block) this piping drawing into our assembly, certain piping elements (bends, T's, ...) get the color of their layer, not the material I've given them.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I got the same problem. Every pipe part that is straight, the steel material is shown correct when rendering, but all Tees, bends and so on still got the gound color even though the properties say it's got the steel texture.
