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

*	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

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