2016-07-25 09:40:23 -0600 commented question Create Openstudio model Object from an .osm File

Julien and Amir, Thanks for the info. I have moved my answer out of the question part. I realize now why it's good to put it down there as your solution, Julien, definitely deserves more positive votes. I might just refrain from using the tags until I understand them more. Is there a list of tags that is already established, Julien?

2016-07-25 09:36:35 -0600 answered a question Create Openstudio model Object from an .osm File

SOLUTION FROM THE PERSON POSTING THE QUESTION: I realized something hiding in plain sight: there's a load() method under 'Static Public Member Functions' in the page that I linked to, which seems to be made for converting .osm files to model objects. This code finally worked for me:

import OpenStudio
osmPath = "C:\MyModels\model.osm"
model = OpenStudio.Model().load(OpenStudio.Path(osmPath)).get()

All of this said, I think Julien's solution is better as it is able to deal with .osm files generated from different versions of OpenStudio. Thanks for the insightful answer, Julien!
