We discuss how to directly download measures and components from the BCL and how to place them in your My Measures folder. This workflow can also be used for sharing measures and components with collegues.
Today, we are going to discuss how to manually install components and measures by downloading them from the Building Component Library (BCL).
Or, if you have a colleague that has created a component or measure that has not been uploaded to the BCL.
You might do this for several reasons.
Perhaps, you go to Apply Measure Now in OpenStudio and you do not have a measure in your measures files.
Perhaps, you go down here to the lower right, Find Measures On BCL. For some reason it is not connecting to the BCL.
You can go to the BCL website and search for measures and components.
Let us go to Browse Measures. Select lighting. We will select one of these recent ones. Maybe...Set Lighting Loads. Okay
This is located under Electric Lighting, Lighting Equipment. Next, download it. Click ok to download it.
It has downloaded into your download folder. Now, go to the My Measures folder, down here in the lower right. Click it.
This will open up all of your custom measures that you have created. All of these are not connected to the BCL.
They are all custom measures. They have been disconnected from syncing with the BCL.
Now, open up your downloads folder. Here is the the measure that we just downloaded.
It is a zip file. Open it. You can see it is called Set Lighting Loads by LPD. We will copy and paste this into our measures folder.
Now it is located in there. Let us go back to OpenStudio. Go to apply measure now. It was located under Electric Lighting, Lighting Equipment. Here it is.
That is the one that we just downloaded and dropped into our folder. It is called Set Lighting Loads by LPD. That is the one we downloaded.
You can see that it is considered a "My" measure. Look at some of the other ones...
If it is a BCL measure, it will have a "BCL" here. That means that it can sync with the Building Component Library. If there are any updates, you can update it.
If you have My measures, it is not going to sync because those are located on your computer and are disconnected from the BCL. They migh also be edited...you can edit the programming in those files.
So, that is how you download directly from the BCL. Or, if you have a colleague that has written a custom measure or a custom component, they can send you that file folder.
It will be a file folder like this. It will have a ruby file, xml file, basically all of these things.
Your colleague can look in their own measures folder, select one of these, and then send you that whole folder. Then, you can take that folder and drop it into your My measures directory.
You can access it directly with this My measures button right here. That buttton opens it up for you. Just drop it right in there.
So, that is how you deal with measures and components that are disconnected from the BCL or have been directly downloaded.
