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:
•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

Collaborate seamlessly with your team:
•Store and share designs in the cloud using Autodesk® 360 cloud services

Wonderful app, mostly misunderstood

This free Autodesk app is simply wonderful. The user that takes the time to learn it, will be highly rewarded.

Keep in mind that the app will not replace high end 3d creation/visualization tools from Autodesk or others but will allow you to give basic shape to most architectural and even industrial design concepts.

I use the app on my iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil with great ease. Highly recommend.

iPad CAD done right

I had been playing with FormIt for over an hour making fun and interesting designs before even thinking of looking for the "help" button. Very intuitive, snappy response. Though not it's intended design, I am using it for designing sculptures and find it the easiest to use for my needs yet. Barely any learning curve. Syncs drawings to Autodesk's cloud service, which has a clunky interface. Haven't figured out how to export from Autodesk360 cloud to a file standard accepted by 3d printing services, would be great if they could clean up the workflow for that - again, not the intended design use of Formit, but since it's such a great cad program, pretty please make it easier for a novice to get a fabrication-service ready file out? I would happily pay for this app.
