In order to assess diferent glazing solutions, and shading types, I need to rapidely change the shading type.

I've followed the instructions here but when I choose Shaded Construction (my window) I end up with Shading Type:SwitchableGlazing.

When Choose Shading Material (my blind) I end up with Shading Type:interiorblind.

Is there a way to obtain Shading Type: Exterior blind?

Hi, you can change shading type in OpenStudio (Spaces: Subsurfaces: ShadingControls). Here you can change the shading type for each subsurfaces or change it one time from the "edit" on the right.
