Hi all, Here is what we're accomplishing: load open an idf, read its 3D geometry and attributes (like in sketchup osm extension ), export 3D model to gbxml, using openstudio cli or other (free and open source) code or workflow
Ideas on how are you doing this with open studio cli or programatically using free and open source are welcome. ok thanks.

Has the File .. Export .. gbXML option in the OpenStudio application provided the gbXML file you need for a single idf file?

If the GUI approach Jason suggested works for you, you should be able to write a measure or script that uses the OpenStudio::EnergyPlus::ReverseTranslator to import an IDF and the OpenStudio::GbXML::GbXMLForwardTranslator to export to gbXML.

Ok thanks for all the comments, since i have not found a direct way using the gbxml avenue, for the requirements of the framework i have developed opted to use native geoprocessing dashboards. It was accomplished all in the same tool that i mention here so thanks all for feedback on this. Cheers, EngFranc.
