I have successfully installed OpenStudio and the plug-in for SketchUp Pro 2016 (which is a 30-day trial).

However, the SketchUp Pro 2016 is only a 30-day trial version. After 30 days, once it is renewed, it will be converted to SketchUp Pro 2017 which is not compatible with OpenStudio.

The SketchUp web-site ( only allows me to download SketchUp Make 2017 which is also not compatible with OpenStudio.

Is there an OpenStudio plug-in which is compatible with SketchUp Make 2017/ SketchUp Pro 2017? If not, when will one be available?

The current OpenStudio packages are not compatible with SketchUp 2017. We are working on upgrading OpenStudio to Ruby 2.2 for compatibility with SketchUp 2017, in the meantime you can email to ask for links to SketchUp 2016 Make.

For more information please see this post: Does OS run with Sketchup 2017?

Clue as to when that will happen? Q1? Q2? later?

Kyle is working on this now, shooting for inclusion in the March release.

Developer release 2.0.1 will be the first release (week of Jan 23rd 2017) with support for SU 2017. 2.1.0 will be the first major release - out late March/early April.
