For example, if you are creating a code baseline model for a project with greater than 40% WWR, scaling the window size in OS would be an easy way to change the WWR than editing every window in Sketchup.

If you have already or not windows on your OpenStudio model, you can use the User Script Set Window to Wall Ratio. You can set the WWR to the ratio that you want.

This User Script allow you to change the WWR on selected spaces only or on all the model at once.
