Load a gbXML, OSM, or IDF file as a Honeybee Model.

The reverse translators within the OpenStudio SDK are used to import all geometry and boundary conditions (including adjacencies) to a Honeybee format.

Note that, while all geometry will be imported, it is possible that not all of the properties assigned to this geometry will be imported, particularly if a certain property is not supported in the OpenStudio SDK. Honeybee will assign defaults for missing properites and, the HBJSON format should be used whenever lossless file transfer is needed.
