Q - question

Some walls are transparent in a rendering.

A - answer In a model converted from Architectural Desktop to VIZ some walls are rendered as transparent (missing) - have probably wrong face normals.

In the DWGLink settings switch on Unify normals - this makes face normals (back and front) look "standard". Alternatively, you can use double-side face rendering - choose 2-sided on the selected material. Switch off the "Backface cull" setting on the object level.
