Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Simulation errors

You have probably specified a counter-clockwise vertex order (as viewed from outside - below the slab for a floor). So switch the order of your floor coordinates to flip it upside down. Make sure you move the semi-colon (;) to the last line and all other lines end with a comma (,).

BuildingSurface:Detailed,FLOORUP, Floor, SLAB, Zone_2,Outdoors, ,SunExposed,WindExposed, 0.2, 4,
4.20000, 7.00000, 3.00000,
42.55000, 0.00000,3.00000,
0.00000, 0.00000, 3.00000;
