Applicable to SketchUp 2017, 2018, & 2019

Issue: 

Error message when attempting to generate a PV layout: ERROR IN GENERATING PV LAYOUT. REASON: NO_RESULT:UNABLE TO PLACE A SINGLE COMPONENT IN REGION

Cause:

The reason for the error message is because the table or the block cannot be placed in the region.  This usually happens because the table or the block is bigger than the region that SunDAT is attempting layout.  This issue can happen due to unit conversion between metric and imperial or the wrong inputs in table or block creation.


Solution:

  1. Verify the dimensions of your region is correct.  
  2. Verify the dimensions of your tables or blocks.  You can do this by going selecting your table or block in Table Creation or Block creation respectively and then press the Update button.  When your table or block is visible, then you can use SketchUp's Tape measure tool to measure the dimensions of the table or block.  
  3. If dimensions for the region and tables/blocks are correct, another thing to try is changing the depth of layout algorithm to higher detail like Normal or Detailed.  This should be used for irregular size projects.
