I am having an issue where when matching surfaces in Sketchup the below errors show up. The model renders more or less properly and the surfaces divide as expected, but when I save and re open the osm in Sketchup nothing shows up. I can see the different building elements in the inspector but I can not get them to show up.

Looks like you have orphan sub surfaces in your .osm model that aren't getting rendered. Try deleting these subsurfaces objects from the .osm file in a text editor, re-saving and re-opening. In SketchUp you can also select "Extensions->OpenStudio User Scripts->Alter or Add Model Elements->Remove Orphan Subsurfaces".

Thanks, it appears that there are no orphaned subsurface (no sub surfaces at all in fact) in my model, pre or post intersected.

Sounds like your model is corrupt. Try the Extensions > OpenStudio User Scripts > Reports > OSM Diagnostic Script and then open the <filename>_diagnostic.osm.

@MatthewSteen the diagnostic script does not seem to work:

"Running OSM Diagnostic Script Error occurred while running user script: ... User script OSM Diagnostic Script completed with errors"

Not exactly sure what was going on, but when I started form scratch on a different machine using 1.14, i was able to get the model to work as expected. Unfortunately because I changed machines, operating systems and OS version all at the same time the source of the error will be difficult to track down.

some possibly useful data points:

I can now open the model developed in 1.14 in 2.0

When I exported my broken 2.0 model to GBXML and then re-imported to 1.14 the issues persisted

When I rebuilt model form the DXF outlines in 1.14 it worked.

Glad it is working now, if you hit an issue like this again we can try to figure out why.
