Hi guys, I'm getting some severe errors (as shown below) saying the vertex of a base surface and outside boundary surface (either side of a wall basically). I've checked the model both the walls seem to be of the exact shape and size. Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks and very much appreciated.

***** Severe  ** RoofCeiling:Detailed="BATHROOM 1 WALL IN 2", Vertex size mismatch between base surface :BATHROOM 1 WALL IN 2 and outside boundary surface: BEDROOM 1 WALL IN 1
   **   ~~~   ** The vertex sizes are 8 for base surface and 4 for outside boundary surface. Please check inputs.***

Can you provide a link to your IDF file? You can use Google Drive or Dropbox, for example.

The shape and size of walls may look correct but it's the number of vertices (8 for base surface BATHROOM 1 WALL IN 2 and 4 for outside boundary surface BEDROOM 1 WALL IN 1) causing this error because they need to match. You can read more about fixing this issue in this post, which focused on using OpenStudio. Does that answer your question?

I've just made the vertices to be exact of each other for both surfaces and it worked! Thanks guys!
