Dear all,

We're hitting a few snags when importing a gbXML from a large Revit model
into IES with respect to the following issues:

   - Bringing all missing surface areas down to zero (during model
   - Bringing sunshades (on curtain walls) with horizontal cylindrical
   tubes in them in. Vertical fin sunshades on punched openings are importing
   - Bringing all curtain wall glazing in as transparent panels. We
   checked over and over to make sure all panels within the curtain wall are of
   the same type, some come in as transparent, some come in as opaque.

If anyone has dealt with and overcome these issues, pointers are highly
