I believe you have to download Euclid by Big Ladder. I had tried downloading the legacy Openstudio/Sketchup plugin and found it's not compatible with Sketchup 2018.

If you have access to Rhino/Grasshopper I would recommend checking out Ladybug Tools' Honeybee plug-in. It will allow you to build your geometry (and even set up schedules, spaces types, construction types) in RH/GH while assigning parametric values (good for early energy analysis). At the very least you can create geometry and export to Openstudio.

Honeybee (you'll also need to install Ladybug to run HB):
