I'm trying to assign a space infiltration flow rate to my space types on OS. First I created a new space infiltration design flow rate according to this links ( instructions.

I was hopping to end up with my new space infiltration element on my model tab, that's not the case.

Does anyone know how to add new space infiltration eleements on "my model" tab?

Space Infiltration objects are treated differently in the GUI than other internal loads. Instead of being a shared resource that can be used by many spaces or space types, each space or space type refers to a unique infiltration object. That is why they don't show in "My Model" while for example Design Specification Outdoor Air does. If you are adding to space types instead of spaces, you will be using gridview. The screenshot below show you how to accomplish what you want by using the multi-select/edit feature.

First drag in any infiltration object from the library. Then edit the name and values to match what you want.

Then select the rows (check box to left of space type name) for the additional space types that you want to add this infiltration object to and select the text field for the object you want to copy and click "Apply to Selected". image description

Notice how the new objects are clones of the original vs. being the exact same object. If you edit one and want to apply it to the building, you need to repeat this step.
