Maximum arguments reached for this object, trying to process

hi, my name is Lorenzo and i’am an architecture student. During my work on HB and LB i 've found this problem :

Hi it’s me again…if i delete all the material info when i try to write IDF file i’ve this:

{0;0;0}
0. Current document units is in Meters
1. Conversion to Meters will be applied = 1.000
2. [1 of 8] Writing simulation parameters…
3. [2 of 8] No context surfaces…
4. [3 of 8] Writing geometry…
5. unsupported operand type(s) for +: ‘str’ and 'list’
6. Failed to write Pelle_aperture000 to idf file
7. unsupported operand type(s) for +: ‘str’ and 'list’
8. Failed to write Pelle_aperture001 to idf file

****or this ****

  1. Current document units is in Meters
    1. Conversion to Meters will be applied = 1.000
    2. [1 of 8] Writing simulation parameters…
    3. [2 of 8] No context surfaces…

    5. Runtime error (MissingMemberException): ‘hb_EPFenSurface’ object has no attribute 'blindsMaterial’
    6. Traceback:

**i think that i’ve same problem with my windows…any suggestion??? **

Thanks for all

Hi LHOR,

A number of components in your file are updated but not all of them. You need to update all of the components either using the update component or manually from the tab.

The error happens because the maximum number of layers for construction in EnergyPlus is 10 and your construction has 11 layers.

thanks a lot for your reply. I’ve update all the componets but i’ve one more question, why when i try to write the idf file the program say to me that :

  1. Runtime error (MissingMemberException): ‘hb_EPFenSurface’ object has no attribute ‘blindsMaterial’

where is the problem??

really thanks for all

I can’t recreate the issue. Did you try the file that I attached up there? Can you upload the file that gives you the error?

PS: you can use a single component to assign different constructions to windows. You don’t even need to decompose the zone. Here is an example.
