when exporting the old open studio file to IDF for energy plus simulation, I get the message that: Space Space 167 is not associated with a thermal zone; it will not be translated.

@Shashwat.S is Space 167 assigned to a thermal zone in the OSM that you're trying to export to an IDF?

Thank you so much. It worked. However, there is another issue pooped up after that- Error: Sub Surface 4 This sub-surface is missing its base surface; it cannot be drawn. Do you have any suggestions?

@Shashwat.S it sounds like Sub Surface 4 has an input field for base surface -- a Surface object type that represents a solid, opaque surface like a wall that the sub surface sits inside of -- which is currently blank and needs to be set to the name of a Surface object.

Surfaces must be assigned to a Space. A Space should be assigned a ThermalZone; a ThermalZone should have 1 or more Spaces.
