I have downloaded the masters version of OS app and am running it in Mac OS. I ran the sim on the example file and all worked. However the results are all in IP. I am trying to get these on SI

Is there a way to view the outputs externally. There is a box asking me to point to Dview but k don’t seem to have this file ?

Thanks R

Check the Measures Tab. The example OSM has the OpenStudio Results Reporting Measure included, right? Click on the measure and toggle from IP (default) to SI. However, EnergyPlus results (e.g. .htm) are in SI by default. One can set OutputControl:Table:Style Unit Conversion to "InchPound" directly in the IDF, but not through OpenStudio as far as I know (EDIT: possible via an EnergyPlus Measure).

(2022-09-29): Deleted previous link to DView - no longer works.

Setting the Output:Control:TableStyle is possible via en EnergyPlus measure. But also if you access the ft directly: ft =; ft.setIPTabularOutput(true), or if you run simulations via the CLI (cf openstudio run --help): openstudio run --set-ip-tabular-output -w workflow.osw
