Gbxml to honeybee element materials parameters not used in energy computation

When I import gbxml exported from Revit into Honeybee, the element materials are not used for energy computation, but when I export gbxml from the imported model in Honeybee, the element materials parameters are there. How can I use those parameters for energy computation in Honeybee?


Honeybee assigns the material/construction to objects and they are part of the gbXML file exported from Honeybee. I haven’t checked Revit’s gbXML for some time now but the last time that I checked gbXML files generated by Revit doesn’t have construction data. There is only the name of the construction which is not enough to set it up for an energy model. You have to set them in Honeybee after importing the gbXML file.
