The problem is i chose a example file from energyplus "example files" folder and modify it on sketchup with euclid and when i run that modify idf file it doesnot produce any output(only produce err and RVAUDIT file only ) although i doesnot change any output variable i only change geometry(add windows and other item littlebit) whereas the example file which is modify produce all result before modification. i tried to read RVAUDIT file it said "requested eso file doesnot found" files content of both modified and unmodified shared below ...kindly help me in this problem

content of RVAUDIT file of modified idf "Thu 05/21/2020 0:47:49.17 ReadVars ReadVarsESO Requested ESO file=eplusout.eso does not exist. ReadVarsESO program terminated. ReadVarsESO program terminated. ReadVarsESO processing:test.mvi Requested ESO does not exist. ReadVarsESO program terminated. ReadVarsESO program terminated.


Content of err file of modified idf "Program Version,EnergyPlus, Version 9.3.0-baff08990c, YMD=2020.05.21 00:47, * Severe * <root>[FenestrationSurface:Detailed][WL-1] - Missing required property 'vertex_3_y_coordinate'. * Severe * <root>[FenestrationSurface:Detailed][WL-1] - Missing required property 'vertex_3_z_coordinate'. * Fatal * Errors occurred on processing input file.

@Junaid Awan this seems like a very similar question that you've already asked. Perhaps we can close one of them? If not, then what version of EnergyPlus did you get the example file from, and what version of Euclid did you use to change the geometry? It looks like there is something wrong with surface geometry from the ERR file content you shared. If possible, could you include links to the modified IDF & ERR?

It could be a Euclid vs EnergyPlus version lack of compatibility.

As @Aaron Boranian suggested, there is a geometry issue.

Years ago I used to model geometry into SketchUp through Legacy Open Studio (previous than Euclid) and I remeber sometime I had this kind of problem using Push/Pull SketchUp comamnd rather than Move. "Move" had always showed to be reliable
