Problems Loading Sketchup Geometry

Hello all!

I'm about 80% of the way through creating the envelope of my building, however when I load my model in Sketchup to finish adding some more windows, the geometry does not appear. My Sketchup outliner loads with no spaces, however when I look at the OpenStudio Inspector, I see all of my spaces and surfaces. When I clicked on a space in the space list in the OpenStudio inspector, it showed up. I clicked another space and it showed up only as a black dot (see pic below).

I am loading my .osm file with the OpenStudio toolbar, so that is not a problem. I'm thinking it could be due to the size of the building, but I wouldn't see why it would fail to load.

Sounds like you hit this issue. Seemed to happen to me when I had a space with a large number of surfaces. Once I subdivided those spaces the model geometry would load.

Also @macumber would probably appreciate if you could send your model to them to help fix the bug.

I had the same problem yesterday with Openstudio 1.12 and I solved it by simply exporting the model as .idf and then importing it to a new .osm file.
