  2. Allow shared thermostats

    Problem: In the past, one could assign thermostats to the entire building in three steps. However, now users now need to assign unique thermostats for every space type because they don't know that many of them are really the same. I guess this will be fixed when we make a wizard.

    Solution: Write a measure for OS App to assign thermostats based on thermostatName = "#{space.name} Thermostat"

    Context: ported from GitHub: https://github.com/NREL/OpenStudio/issues/985

  3. Publish an upgrade timetable for the SketchUp versions

    Publishing an upgrade timetable for the SketchUp versions would enable us to plan a corporate (University student lab) installation of Sketchup. At present, looking ahead for maximum compatibility over the next semester with Student downloads, we install the latest version of SketchUp; however, the latest version of OpenStudio is incompatible with this version of the SketchUp program. If we knew the timetable for compatibility changes for SketchUp we could manage our installation plan for the image for 600+ computers - perhaps delaying the installation of the newer version of sketchup or waiting to finalise the image if the newer version…

  4. Develop OS Inspector as New Editor Instrusment for OS Legacy Sketchup plug-in

    Hello,
    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 Maybe geometry script is outdated but gbxml or OSM export can be very useful here.
