I have a problem with my open studio model and I don't know how to cope it. Below is the definition of this problem:

Error: Model with Version 1.1.0 IDD is not valid to draft strictness level.

Error: The collection is INVALID at strictness level 'Draft', because of the errors: Object level data error of type NoIdd . Error pertains to an object of type 'Catchall', named ''. Additional information about the error type: input data definition is missing or empty.

@Tom - welcome! I retagged your question with more appropriate tags so that it's searchable. Looks like there might be a problem with an object called 'Catchall'.

Try using the diagnostic script as described here to see if that files the model.

@Benjamin has good advice. EnergyPlus will complain if you use characters such as commas and semicolons which are used for delimiting object fields. For example the , after the handle to denote the end of a field and the ; after the version identifier to denote the end of an object.

 {ecd98db1-abc5-4a10-9fd5-2ac692b3dfe7},     !- Handle
 1.5.0;                                      !- Version Identifier

I have experienced this problem, and it was related to the name I'd given to an object, in that it wasn't a valid name. You could examine the .osm file using a text editor, search for "catchall" and see if renaming the object helps.
