Euclid for SketchUp

Euclid for SketchUp is a free and open-source extension that makes it easy to create and modify the geometry inputs for building energy models. Euclid builds on the Legacy OpenStudio extension for EnergyPlus. Euclid will continue to support reading and writing of EnergyPlus geometry, but will also add new features and capabilities to read and write other energy model formats.

Install/Uninstall

Euclid is installed using the Extension Manager in SketchUp. You can find instructions here on how to install extensions manually via the Extension Manager. (NOTE: Euclid is not currently available on the Extension Warehouse.)

You can also use the Extension Manager to uninstall Euclid. If you just want to temporarily turn off Euclid, you can disable and enable extensions using the Extension Manager.

Usage

For the time being, Euclid is still sufficiently similar to the Legacy OpenStudio extension that you can refer to the Legacy OpenStudio User Guide for documentation and tutorials. You can open the guide from inside SketchUp by selecting Extensions > Euclid > Legacy OpenStudio User Guide or by clicking the corresponding toolbar button.
