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
Hello FormIt Fans!
We’ve got some great enhancements and fixes in store for FormIt v17.3:
o Restored ability to import local FormIt files without a BIM 360 Docs subscription
o Added the ability to view colors in OBJ files that have embedded color information, like 3D scans from Recap
o Group bounding boxes now reflect the Group’s coordinate system orientation, and Non-Uniform Scale uses this info to place its grips
o Improved performance of opening large OBJ files, and reduced overhead when saving large files and also for downloading BIM 360 Docs thumbnails
o Improved units handling for OBJ/STL files
• Lots of bug fixes, especially in the areas of selection highlighting, shadows, and core tools like Move and Drag Face (extrude)
Ratings and Reviews
Great app, but...
The whole system of viewing, modifying, and exporting is unclear and frustrating. At this point I'm unsure whether I'll be able to export anything I create for use in Blender scenes, or elsewhere. If that's the case, it's pretty useless to me.
Otherwise, this app has a lot of great features that make creating fast and comprehensible. The snap functions are priceless for the iPad platform. The GUI is super intuitive, and it's really easy to create awesome structures quickly.
But not being able to export is, well, almost cruel. I'm signed up for cloud their cloud access, and I have the other Autodesk apps one supposedly needs for further viewing and modification, but I only get viewing error messages. Not fun.
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.
It is terrible
