Above is my eplusout.err file, the geometry model was exported from Revit then gotten into OS via gbXML. The main problem is that though the error report tells me where is abnormal, I cannot find the schedule under Schedule tab in my model. Besides, the name of the schedule is the same as the one I find in my Revit model, which means that the schedule comes from Revit, even if I can neither find nor edit it, and it is fragmentary.

I'm not sure how to fix this error directly in Revit, but I was able to fix this error by manually deleting the schedules in the gbXML after exporting from Revit. I'm very interested finding out how to do this directly in Revit so that the exported gbXML file does not contain any unnecessary schedules upon import into OpenStudio. Thanks for tip!

Hi Julien, I tried your suggestion, I used Revit in English and named my schedules by English characters in Revit. Though the error still occurred... But it's an idea, maybe helpful with problems in the future, still thx!

Hi hgenb, that sounds feasible! I also take a glance at the descriptions of schedule in gbXML file. Seems for every space there is a statement of schedule assignment, and an additional function defining the schedule yearly, weekly & daily. Though I cannot detect any missing days...but there must be something abnormal. So it would be better to just remove them. What is your manual method of removing? Just simply delete these schedules or? Plz tell me, thx!

Yes, I manually opened the gbXML in a text editor and deleted the schedules, including all their references within the spaces.

I also think the following workflow will address the issue with the Revit schedules being imported into OpenStudio via gbXML: 1. from Revit 3D view, export gbXML from Revit using "Room/Space Volumes" 2. choose "Spaces" as the export category in the "Export gbXML Settings" dialog box 3. uncheck "Export Default Values", which will exclude the schedules from the gbXML export

It appears this is an issue with OpenStudio itself. Your file appears to be valid gbxml (at least with respect to the Schedules).

I've opened an issue at NREL/OpenStudio#4439 and will address it shortly. Follow the issue for updates.

Edit: Should be addressed via https://github.com/NREL/OpenStudio/pu...
