I am trying to use "Rooftop Unit" measure which is a "ModelMeasure" type. I downloaded in from the Online BCL but the measure does not show in the library. Also, I wanted to use is as an "Apply Measure" and it does not show up there as well. Can anyone provide any recommendation on how to solve this issue ? I am using Sketchup Make 2017 with OpenStudio 2.9.1.

Thank you!

@Biraj it looks like your image link didn't work. Could you update your post to include a URL?

Did you install this measure directly from the BCL website, or did you download it using the OpenStudio Application?

@aaron I downloaded it using the BCL in the Openstudio Application.

That measure was last updated in 2014 by Honeybee BCL Group. While it says it supports OpenStudio 1.8 and later, my guess is that it has not been tested and doesn't support more recent versions.

We are working on some updates to BCL that will make it easier for measure developers to test and release their measures and a public way for users to see the code repository for those measures and file issues.

Thanks for the info David. I used "Create Variable Speed RTU" measure but I have to run this measure every time I run the simulation. So works for me for now.
