This feature was removed from the SketchUp plug-in but is being replaced by the ViewData measure. The current ViewData measure has a few kinks that are being worked out, an updated version will be released in the near future.

Update: Added sample output from the measure. Live demo, choose Render By Data to see this feature.

What? You couldn't embed the active control in the answer?

Pretty! How long until you have an open-source WebGL replacement for SketchUp?

We've been using this post to outline the plan for creating alternatives to the SketchUp plug-in with OpenStudio . A full 3D interface isn't in the plan but we do hope to be able to make a simplified 2D editor at some point.

Thank you very much for the answer. I would like to know if the "surface outside face temperature" is the only variable in the problem or if I have the possibility to visualize others ones of them.

Yes, you can specify variable names for data visualization. Here is a screenshot of the measure in an analysis workflow. On the right side of the screen you can see the inputs that Dan has exposed in the measure.

Currently we support surface and zone variables, but we have talked about adding air loop variables as well. All of those are easy to map to model geometry, but for example a plant loop variable wouldn't because multiple plants may serve a specific zone. One exception we would like to add simple way to view weather data (but that isn't something we are working on now).
