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
•Participate in real-time editing sessions with other FormIt users using either the iOS or Web versions
What's New in Version 16.1.1
Hello FormIt Fans!
This minor update will allow you to navigate better and provides more Undo/Redo flexibility than ever before in your models!
Here is what’s new:
•When editing the Main Sketch (not inside a Group), Undo/Redo now works globally and chronologically, so the last change will always be affected, even if that change happened inside a Group
•When editing a Group, Undo/Redo is still per-Group as before
•Improved the Orbit algorithm to be more consistent, especially with selections that are behind (or partially behind) the camera
•When importing a model (via File > Import or Content Library) that contains Section Planes, the Planes are now discarded to avoid potential issues
•Fixed an issue where opening a file Saved with History doesn't restore the histories properly
Downloaded this app because it looked like someone had finally come up with an alternative to Sketchup which actually works on an iPad. However, the interface is far from intuitive and is extremely painful to use. The lack of pop ups explaining what the tools are and how to use them just adds to the mystery. Such a shame. A bit of development would go a long way.
