Hi Robert,

I would like to echo the comments made by Chris, as far as my experience in
order to have clean error free energyplus model tracing is inevitable.
Openstudio's  sketchup plugin allows you to import dwg file and then you
can create openstudio spaces by tracing in sketchup.

We are working on a plugin for Autocad wherein the user should be able to
create and store information required for simulation in Autocad itself.
However, still one has to trace the spaces and wall over the original
