Hi! I'm new using openstudio. I'm trying to run the DOE commercial reference models. So far in the 1.14 version I have been able to import the idf files to get the geometry. Do you have recommendations/steps about running with all the characteristics? Could this be done in openstudio2?

There's a measure for that called Create DOE Prototype Building. I just tested the measure and it works for 1.14.0 but not 2.0.2. Importing an IDF directly to OpenStudio will translate everything except the HVAC system.
