I'm working on automatically implementing surrounding buildings sourced from a .gml file into an EnergyPlus simulation as shading surfaces. Everything seems to work correctly, but when opening the final .idf file, many roofs are not visualized in the Geometry tab of Open Studio, though it does not affect all roofs. Weirdly, all the missing roofs appear in the facility tab with the correct coordinates. I'm working with the OpenStudioApplication v1.1.0 and EnergyPlus v.9.4.0. I already tried troubleshooting this by visualizing the geometry outside of OpenStudio, and the missing roof surfaces appear in the right spot as they should. I'm thankful for all the help I can get with this problem.

@Kuchen can you attach image(s) to your post to show the issue that you are seeing?

i added a screenshot of the geometry and the vertices for one of the missing roof surfaces
