I have applied my construction (P7) to the "Shading Surface 2" in the OS application, and It is showed in the Facility tab.

But I do not know why when I reopen the model in sketchup it does not show any construction for the "Shading Surface 2"?

I can do it individually but I would like to apply it in the OS application. image description

In the case of the surface you are showing, it won't participate in heat transfer, therefore there's no point in assigning a construction to it. You should just assign it a transmittance schedule if need be.

Assigning a construction for shading is reserved in the case of window "coverings": inside or outside, or in-between glass layer.
