Autodesk FormIt has been introduced at last weeks Autodesk University and is the 1st Architectural Form Modeler for the iPad. FormIt is an intuitive, easy to use mass modeling application helping designers make informed decisions while accessing site & climate data. The building and site aware app allows designers to sketch proposed design options that can be compared with program requirements and then shared with the project team for continued collaboration through Autodesk 360.

Here are some app highlights, including Revit interoperability:
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

Available now on the Apple App Store.
