Is Euclid (the Open Studio PlugIn) compatible with the Web version of SketchUp?

I would like to create a simple model in the Sketch Up Web viewer to be run in EnergyPlus. To do this, it is my understanding that I will need to have Euclid to get the SketchUp model into the proper file format. Will Euclid run on the Web Version or do I need to get a paid downloaded version of SketchUp?

I recommend installing the desktop Sketchup application, rather than using the web viewer. I don't believe Euclid is compatible with Sketchup Web. You can download Sketchup Make 2017 here.

Correct -- free SketchUp web applications from 2018 onwards are not compatible with Euclid or any other extension/plug-in. You need a desktop SketchUp application to work with Euclid (or an other extension/plug-in), and the most recent free desktop option is Make 2017, which Eric linked to above. You can read more about this here and here.
