Floorspace.js to OS creating Model with Vertex Errors

I'm running into a problem with a FloorspaceJS file having Vertex mismatches between the ceiling of a 1st story and the floor of a 2nd story. I've tried redrawing this a few times to make sure it's not just a misclick on my part, however I keep getting vertex errors. I've also tried importing this into fresh OS models without luck. I found some posts here regarding vertex errors with the SketchUp tool, however I wasn't able to find any strategies that address this problem with FloorspaceJS.

I made this file in my web browser at https://nrel.github.io/floorspace.js/ and then imported it into my OS model. I'm running OpenStudio Application Release 1.0.0.

Below is the excerpt with relevant errors from the eplusout.err file when I try running the OS model.

Program Version,EnergyPlus, Version 9.3.0-baff08990c, YMD=2021.01.08 11:57,

Has anyone else encountered this or know how to fix this?

Apply the surface_matching_diagnostic measure can help you solve this problem.
