Hi there and thx for the report (sorry this has been lying around).

Possibly normals are inverted, but to really investigate, could you share one of those .wrl files so we can check?

@Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk)
you can test any of the KiCAD 3D model wrl files...
I used to import those files in Blender and it worked fine till 2.7.9
With Blender 2.8 the wrl just loses colors.
(tested with blender-2.81a-linux-glibc217-x86_64)
i.e. you can try this file
https://github.com/KiCad/kicad-packages3D/raw/master/Capacitor_SMD.3dshapes/CP_Elec_10x10.5.wrl
or
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/KiCad/kicad-packages3D/master/Capacitor_Tantalum_SMD.3dshapes/CP_EIA-7343-30_AVX-N.wrl
