I made a model with 6 spaces, however some of the spaces are defined as Solid Group and have a volume and another spaces are defined as Group and don't have volume. There is any problem with my model?

Thank you André

Make sure you are using Sketchup with OpenStudio plugin, it should look like this: image description

Now please watch the series of well explained videos which you can find here. They are somewhat old and refers to older versions but you will get the idea of what you need to do.

You can also read the OpenStudio SketchUp Plug-in Interface Guide tutorial and the Creating Your Model tutorial.

Have fun
