Autodesk FormIt - Conceptual Design Modeling on an iPad

Autodesk® FormIt mobile app helps you capture building design concepts digitally anytime, anywhere ideas strike. Use real-world site information to help create forms in context and support early design decisions with real building data. Experience a continuous Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow by synchronizing designs in the cloud for further refinement using Autodesk® Revit® software products and other applications.

Express design ideas with easy-to-use tools:
  • Create forms quickly from a gallery of shapes
  • Directly manipulate forms using gestures for easy model changes
  • Save designs to the cloud and share with others

Easy access to site information:
  • Set project location in a searchable maps interface
  • Import satellite image of your site
  • Design directly in the context of your proposed building location

Make early design decisions:
  • Explore the effects of the sun using the location-aware Shadow Study tool
  • Start early program analysis by tracking gross building floor area ratio while you design

Experience a more continuous BIM workflow:
  • Store and share designs in the cloud using Autodesk® 360 cloud services
  • Easily transfer designs to desktop applications via RVT or SAT file formats
  • Explore design ideas and add detail to early design forms using award-winning BIM technology

Autodesk FormIt is available for free on the iTunes App Store.
