I'm trying to make a patch of grass by populating a surface with a mesh I have created in Blender and imported in Godot. When I try to use MultiMeshInstance in this way, I get an error message: "Mesh source is invalid (not a MeshInstance)". This is clearly because, apparently, models are imported as Spatial nodes with MeshInstance containing the actual mesh as a child node and a Spatial node can't be be used as a source mesh in MultiMeshInstance.

Is there any way around this problem?

Godot version v3.2.3.stable.official
in Engine by (20 points)

I have circumvented the problem by not importing the model directly, but by saving only the mesh as an .obj file and importing it as a mesh for a blank MeshInstance node. However, it would be nice to know why importing the model, including the material, directly did not work.
