OpenStudio Zone loads button in 1.13 version

Osama's avatar


I'm using OpenStudio Plug-in 1.13 with SketchUp 16, but I can't find the "Zone loads" button.

Can someone tell me how to define the zone loads or even the default construction using OpenStudio Plug-in?

You may be looking at an old video from the legacy plugin or 0.4 or earlier version of OpenStudio. See screenshots on this similar post.

Hi, Did you mean the loads for all individual spaces? They can be found here, here, under the spaces >> loads tab. From the image, you can see that these loads are inherited from the space types the spaces conform to (red color). Under the Space types >> Loads section, you can edit the loads for the individual space types. Since each of these spaces would have a thermal zone attached to them, I think this may be your best option. Hope this answers your question. Thanks.

Thank you gokulram, but my question was about OpesStudio plug-in with SketchUp.

In previous versions of OS plug-in, it was possible to define all zone loads within SketchUp, then export the project to OpenStudio software which I can't find it in the latest version of OS plug-in.
