    you are trying to render an instance of an instance. may i ask why? why just not create a group of an object and render just a single instance of this group? and it will definitively render

    It's for large masterplan scenes, every building block-section on masterplan is group instance untitled.jpg

    For each unique block-section I have scene to work with, untitled2.jpg

    I use a lot instances and proxies (curtains for example and air conditioning blocks) inside instanced groups for all repeating elements, especial decorative elements In this issue case I need decorative lattice similar to screenshot, it has repeating pattern, I just made one small section then block it to desireble scale, made group of it and tried to instanceuntitled3.jpg

    Maybe it's easy to make 4 types of decorative lattice but I don't want to increase file size Array modifier is not an option, it is not working well inside instanced groups in corona, some parts just not render often

    Instance of an instance is a problem with Corona and even elsewhere.

    So to overcome the issue or bypass it, think: "Game Design!"

    Depending on texel density you could simply fill in with low poly geo or even just a plane & proper texture.

    Give 8.0.30 a try, it supports groups of groups but there is some issue with that example where it renders strange for me. I think it is something to do with multiple scenes and groups being on hidden layers on the other scene.

    Yep group problem solved but strange things happen, instanced group appears in scene center during render rrr.jpg
