Imported 3D Symbol (3Ds) Rendering Wrong

I have created a simple 3D model in Blender, and am trying to now import it into chief X5 as a 3ds. I've done this before with other models (which were successful), but this one is giving me no end of trouble.

 

I've been battling with various settings in both Blender and chief and I still can't get it to look right. I have enabled "Cull Layered Transparent Surfaces" in the object properties which improved the situation, but it still looks like this, with the wheels showing through the body (no matter which angle you view from). As you can see from the screenshot, it is shown in the preview window without a problem at all.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions on what could be causing it or how I could set the model up differently to avoid this issue?

      Showcasing a space can sometimes best be accomplished by showcasing the entire area within an integrated 360 Tour.  Video is great for clips, generating interest, investment, and capital campaigns but it drives a user on a set path on a set time frame.  Try a 360 Tour!  Your users can take all the time they need and really get a feel of a space.  Please see one posted at the link below:

      Tours can be generated easily and quickly.  All we need from you is the 2D or 3D floor plan(s) you wish to use, and the spherical images you wish to upload.  A company logo, text, and even video can be set into the tour as well.  Tours run off our own server and will be active for 18 months upon payment.  Very competitive pricing and updates are fast and easy providing the images are resent using the same file names.

      Instead of spending hours searching, I prefer to do this. My apologizes.

      I've designed homes in previous versions of CA. All the way back to 4. Well, computer HD crashed a while back and nearly lost everything. After new HD, installation of CA 12 w/bonus materials, its back to normal. However...
       
      When I render anything in any of the 6 houses in version 12 I get this alert window (see pic) telling me it can't find the files on the list. Instead of spending hours replacing each one, I would like to know if there is way to simple delete or restore them back to their default material setting, delete them altogether, anything! I can't seem to do them (delete is dimmed) either for some reason. Thanks in advance.
