Only window materials

Hi,

I’m trying to make a test with a box that’s supposed to be constructed entirely of window material.

I get the following error for all surfaces "1. The simulation has not run correctly because of this severe error:

** Severe ** BuildingSurface:Detailed=“3F3A7E740BF54954A0A9”, invalid Construction Name=“FABRIC_CONSTRUCTION” - has Window materials.

How can make it run when there’s only window material in the construction??

@Mesrop,
In Energyplus it’s not acceptable 100% glazing ratio. For example, you can scale down the child surface to 0.9 then, plug into the _childSurfaces input in Honeybee_addHBGlz component.

Or use Honeybee_Glazing based on ratio:
