Hi everyone. I need to use ResStock software but I didn't succeed to download it. Is it open-source software? I cannot see any part for download in their website!

Go to this link.

Find the version you want to use. If you are using OpenStudio/PAT rather than .yml files to set up your simulation, you should select version 2.2.5, which is the most recent version supported as a PAT project. I have a lot of experience setting up ResStock v2.2.5 and prior, but not so much experience with v2.3.0 and v2.4.0, which do not use PAT.

Click on the version you want and then click on Source code (zip) to download.

Copy your download to desktop, unzip the files, and open up the project_singlefamilydetached folder as an existing project in PAT.

I also recommend reading the documentation, it is very helpful. Let me know if you have any questions.

If you decide to use v2.3+, you will also need to download buildstock in order to run the simulations.
