Hi Modelers!

I am new to Openstudio and am having trouble simulating a file I developed. I'm sure my issues have arose prior being a new user. I have reviewed many videos/questions and have been moving through the err Log to try and get it to finish simulation. At this point I am having no luck and am spending lots of time with little results.

@jmacleod if your simulation is failing, it is likely because of a severe error message. What you have pasted into your post from the error file are all warning messages about schedules and geometry, which EnergyPlus normally can still simulate with. Can you search for "Fatal" in your error file, and copy the lines just above that with "Severe" into this post?

You can see an example of this in this post.

That is the interesting part, I have no severe or fatal errors left in the file. I have corrected them prior. I have read this morning on another thread that it might be an assigned thermal zone with no space attached to it. I will review my sketchup up file and provide an update. Thank you for your timely reply.

It looks like you have at least a few zones here with some surfaces in them. Can you show the last 20-30 lines of the eplusout.err file and can you let us know if you have an eplousout.html file?

@David Goldwasser Hey David, I have fixed the problem within Sketchup. Thank you for the reply.
