File management in SketchUp with OpenStudio and EnergyPlus
Hello. I'm really new at all this and I have trouble with some of the basics. I want to simulate an office building but I cant seem to figure out the correct way to save my progress, which is causing a lot of frustration. I'm using SketchUp 2014 with OpenStudio 1.5.
What I do is:
- Create some Spaces, Thermal Zones and Geometry
- Selecting Save As or Export from the OpenStudio menu doesnt seem to do anything so I start with Save As .skp model from the File menu
- I am then able to use all options under OpenStudio menu (Save As, Export as both .idf and .osm)
When I reopen SketchUp, I can't open any of the files I previously saved!
The .skp file is blank, and both .idf and .osm files give me error messages (some message about EP versions and a "Validity check: Failed to load file" for the .osm file)
I'm pretty sure I'm missing something really simple here, any help please?
