We recently made a condominium model on Sketchup, and we wanted to know the parts of the building its thermal conditions. But when we surface matched it, the color does not change. Is there any way to fix this? Any help will really be appreciated.

@Adriel have you already reviewed the OpenStudio SketchUp Plug-in Interface Guide? Be mindful that the first step of the Surface Matching Tool is to intersect and divide inter-zone surfaces before you try to match them for boundary conditions.

We haven't reviewed it, thanks we'll try that. Thank you!

@Aaron Boranian may I ask on how to intersect and divide zone?

@Adriel you can select a space and its surrounding/adjacent spaces before using the Surface Matching tool (i.e. Intersect in Selection). That will reduce the number of spaces the tool will try to alter. Otherwise, you can apply the Surface Matching tool to the entire model (i.e. Intersect in Entire Model).
