I have two icospheres. One inside the other to represent a human cell.

I put 2 materials on the geometry in the "real world", meaning outside of the node network. I then assigned the materials using an Attribute Fill setting the material_index inside the node network.

For some reason the spheres still carry the default material in object mode and I only see the materials assigned inside the node network when I switch to edit mode.

Is there a way to do this without going to Blender v3 which has material nodes for the geometry nodes?

Object Mode

Edit Mode

    $\begingroup$ Similar to blender.stackexchange.com/questions/227175/… It seems in V 293 it's not possible to assign a material to instanced (object-less) geometry. Might be a bug though since the material is correctly applied when switching to edit-mode as you noticed $\endgroup$
