Hello Experts,

I am working on OS model in version 2.8.1 and I used to be able to view/open/edit the OS file in 2018 Sketch Up pro via the OS plugin. However, I had to remove and reinstall the both sketch and OS (v2.8.1 and v2.8.0) due to license issues wit SketchUp. Since the reinstall the OS SketchUp plugin in is not loading/showing in SketchUp. Any pointers on how to get this working? I am working on a project with tight timeline and any help/suggestions will be much appreciated.

Thanks, Aditya

Does anyone have OSv2.8.1 "openstudio.rbz" file that they can share? the plugin into 2018 sketchup pro. I can try installing it through the extension manager.

I believe you need Sketchup 2017, at least that is what we use for our OS v2.9 projects. Email me and I can send you the install file. elizabeth at energetics-eng dot com

Yes, according to the OpenStudio Version Compatibility matrix OS app versions 2.0.1 - 2.9.1 work with SketchUp 2017 (Free or Pro). Any OS app versions newer than that require SketchUp Pro (NOT Free) from 2018 or later.

Thank you, Elizabeth and Aaron for the feedback. I ended up installing Sketchup 2017 and the OS plugin. I did see the compatibility matrix.
