Because thickness is a material property, material libraries become enormous quickly. BCL is already almost unusable for constructions.
Thickness is an extensive property, it should belong to a layer in a construction. Materials should encapsulate intensive properties only. We might be too far down the road to solve this in E+, but it would not be that tough in OS.
This needs to be coordinated with and targeted at the BCL. There only needs to be a single entry for 140# concrete etc. The same goes for private libraries.1 vote
Problem: right now you can't move a measure from the "Always Run" group to the "Measure Group" and vice versa. I might have loaded a model with all the measures I'll eventually need, but I might want to create design alternatives by adding them one at a time to see the incremental savings. Currently I have to delete them and recreate them in the "Measure group" which is time consuming and annoying.
Solution: make it switchable.1 vote
OS Inspector is pretty similar with IDFEditor in Energyplus. It's will be much better if we can see in sketchup screen all model information. Maybe geometry script is outdated but gbxml or OSM export can be very useful here.1 vote
