Visualise materials dropping on re-import

Hi. I have been experiencing a pretty frustrating aspect of Visualize 2017 Pro. Don't know whether its down to my dodgy workflow or just a glitch.

 

I have a large assembly in Solidworks and I'm monitoring the file in Visualize for renders. However when I re-import the model after a small change in the Solidworks file, a lot of the materials are either dropped by the component they are applied to or the mapping gets messed up, or both. Kind of de-valuing the whole point of the monitor file function.

 

Am I doing something wrong, is there a way to 'fix' the material / texture / appearance to certain components so that upon re-imort this doesn't happen? Some things I'd need to change some I would want to same.

 

Thank you.
