Forest imports correctly, but nothing is shown


Previously it worked in the same Rhino/Lands Design document. I just made a circle, added the forest through the normal command. But now when I do the same thing, nothing shows up. In any viewing mode. What could be the cause of this?

For reference, it works fine creating a new document with a circle and adding the forest onto it.

Hej Elias -
If things are file-specific, please post the 3dm file that you are having issues with.
Also, please run the Rhino SystemInfo command and copy-paste the result here.

Hey Wim, thanks for the reply. Here is a link to the file (it was larger than 20mb). WeTransfer - Send Large Files & Share Photos Online - Up to 2GB Free
Edit: There are a number of curves visible in the document, it seems I get the same empty result regardless of which I choose to place the forest within.

And below is results from SystemInfo:

Hi Eliash,
I think the problem is that our Conceptual blocks use the Default layer. You have this layer Off (and locked), this is why you can’t see the plants you create:

We should correct the conceptual 3dm’s (and detailed as well) so that they don’t rely on any layer. Meanwhile, you can just activate the Default layer.
