I want to run the OSM diagnostics to remove some very degenerate surfaces. I've done this before and usually the script saves a new file called "filename_diagnostics.osm" after running. The last few times I've tried it does save anything after running. Any ideas on how I can get it to resave the file again so I can use the changes it makes? Thank you!

It typically will only save it it found objects to change. Can you post the ruby console log from the script. There is a true/false argument when you run the script to remove objects for warnings vs. just telling you about them. Make sure that is set to true.

I have the same issue. the text from the OSM report is too long so I'll have to post it here in multiple comments:

My errors are as follows:

Error: Sub Surface 7 This sub surface is missing its base surface, it cannot be drawn.

Error: Sub Surface 5 This sub surface is missing its base surface, it cannot be drawn.

Error: Sub Surface 8 This sub surface is missing its base surface, it cannot be drawn.

Error: Sub Surface 9 This sub surface is missing its base surface, it cannot be drawn.

Error: Sub Surface 10 This sub surface is missing its base surface, it cannot be drawn.

@re-measure it isn't clear from the log you posted that it found any errors in the diagnostic script. The errors that come up about the orphan sub surfaces can be addressed by running the Remove Orphan and Unused Resources Measure in the OpenStudio application.

Thanks David. This is exactly the answer I was looking for.
