3D Component disappears after library change

Hi

 

Some time ago, I changed the colors of some 3D models in a library. That change never was visible in the 3D model for reasons I still don't understand (see my previous post https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/fusion-360-electronics/updating-library-parts-in-fusion-electronics/m...). I just let it be because the colors were just for aestethics and in this phase not very important yet.

 

However, when I made some random change in the library recently, some of thos parts were finally updated (yay!!). But as always, there was a catch: some other parts magically disappeared from the model!

 

The potentiometers on the right are now finally updated to the new version. The sliders however have disappeared (also note the missing component left)The potentiometers on the right are now finally updated to the new version.

When I go back to the board and look at the properties of the device, I notice that the library is _SamacSys_Parts.ff9058a3-5f4b-4bf8-aeb5-41efac26af20.flbr (Version 😎. I did not add this GUID in my library name. This goes for both the potentiometers (that turned out ok) as for the sliders (who disappeared).

 

Now when I right click on the slider and choose Open device, I get the right 3D model!!

THERE IT IS, RIGHT THERE!!!

 

Why doesn't it show up in the 3D model (and yes, I did update the 3D model; other changes are coming through correctly)? And what is this temporary-looking library? Where is it located and why doesn't it show up anywhere?

Along with the saving problem we have in common, I also have this issue which only looks to affect 1 or 2 library components.

 

I have a capacitor library with all the common sizes, 0603, 0805 etc and the 1210 foot print will consistently loose it's 3D model in the 3D PCB, when I try to fix it in the library it's still there, I've found moving it 1mm and moving it back as two different operations opens up the save icon, allowing me to save the library and this seems to fix it.

 

Of course i'm not sure if saving the library this way breaks the saving of the schematic, but to be honest I've given up trying to work it out, I'll wait for someone in the Fusion team to look at it.
