Export of shading surfaces was added with a list of other features when we achieved gbXML certification for OpenStudio exports.

  • Export building stories
  • Export DocumentHistory
  • Export SurfaceReferenceLocation
  • Export Shading Surfaces
  • Import windowTypeIdRef
  • Import translate air wall
  • Import schedule week

These features can be previewed in the 1.12.2 developer build, they will be all complete in the 1.12.3 developer build and will be in the 1.13.0 release.
