Im trying to run a energy simulation for LEED purposes. I found a measure called ROTATE BUILDING. As soon as I put the measure it wont run the simulation. Any ideas how to use that measure?

I deleted all OpenStudo Lighting Simulation objets (Daylighting control, Glare Sensors and Iluminance maps) and the PAT ran perfectly.

That measure can be used in the apply measure now button in OS or in PAT. For LEED purpose, you would want to run that measure in PAT to create the runs for 90, 180, and 270 degree rotation: image description

What do you mean by "put the measure"? How are you applying the measure, in OS or in PAT? Are you making sure that you input a value for the roatation? image description

Also, is your model running before you apply the script?

Thanks Taylor. I used PAT. My model did run before applying the script.

In the measure section I selected the rotate building meassure 3 times (90 180 270) same as your pic. Then in the design alternatives select All and create one for each selected measure. Finally run locally. it doesnt run any alternative and it shows me 3 errors: Error: Process exited with a non-zero exit code of 65 Error: Error report file indicates that the process did not complete Error: Error report file indicates that the porcess did not complete successfully forrtl PC Routine line source
