Hello everyone,

I am working on a 25 storey building and looking to model it using the Open Studi Sketchup Plugin. I Used 'create spaces from Diagrams' to create the 3D Model, but I have to assign two different types of glazing on each facade. How can I do that without using WWR script? Can I use floor multipliers? I want to avoid the monotonous work. Any suggestions on how I can do that?

Or If I use an exsisting model (for eg. DOE prototype building), how to modify the number of floors?

Thanks
