Thanks for the bug report. For homes with eaves, certain building geometries could result in this error. I have a bugfix setup file that you can install over your previous version and it should fix it. (It includes all previous bugfixes too.)

Thanks! Worked on the first model I tested with the issue. FWIW, I really appreciate the faster runtimes and the help debugging. I haven't run side-by-side comparisons, but I'm already noticing faster iterations and its much easier to adopt. Makes me less (slightly) less concerned to consider rerunning old models in the new version. #mightbeabatchfeaturerequestlater
