I am working on creating a Surface Matching Ruby measure but I am running into some difficulties. The surface matching measure is based off of the Sketch-Up openstudio button 'Surface Matching'. The problem is identifying the matching walls. I have looked into checking for adjacent walls or looking at coordinates of surfaces to find matches but am getting a bit confused. What would your suggestion be to find the matching surfaces? Also are there any existing Ruby measures which would provide this functionality?

There is an OpenStudio measure for matching unmatched surfaces, which is run from the OpenStudio application. The measure uses the native matchSurfaces method (source code here), rather than SketchUp-specific methods.
