I am using the SketchUp 2019 for 3D modeling and OpenStudio Application release version 1.0.0 for building simulation. Yesterday, I tried to access the building component library (BCL) to download few measures. But unfortunately, I couldn’t as there seems to be an error in the building component library, which was working fine earlier. May I know if the BCL server is down? If not, is there any way to fix this issue? I have attached the errors with this query for your reference.

Seems to be working now. EDIT: Never mind, still down.

I've got the same problem (since Friday). It's still not working.

NREL is looking into it.

@shorowit@krwr Thanks for your response. As you may already know by now, NREL have sorted it out. May be some technical glitches.

@Manu4Energy Thanks for pointing this out. BCL is back up now. If it still doesn't work for you know, please let me know.

I'm unable to download materials from BCL - it seems to be hanging (progress bar just scrolls horizontally without returning). I'm new to OpenStudio so can't say definitively whether this is related to the BCL issue or something else? I'm on Mac Catalina 10.15.7.
