For Apex Destructible components, the un-fractured mesh rendered for each asset is the same and disappears when the component fractures, despite the physics bodies being correct.

Steps to Reproduce

Enable the Apex Destruction plugin + restart editor.

Create two Destructible Meshes from two different static meshes.

Notice how the destructible mesh editor renders the same mesh for each.

Click Fracture Mesh for each.

Notice how both meshes disappear.

Enable impact damage for both and place an instance of each in the level above the ground with simulate physics enabled.

PIE/SIE and enter the command: pxvis collision

Notice how while the rendering is incorrect, the physics bodies are correctly generated/simulated.
