Thank you so much for the provided project - it was forwarded to me. I examined it and observed that scale.labels.font definition is invalid - font-family definition is mandatory when the shorthand font property is used (link). Hence in order to get everything correctly rendered please try the following:
.Scale(scale => scale
.Labels(labels => labels
"5px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"
