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

AdjHanson ,


Great capability for a mobile application, but any sufficiently detailed structure causes the app to crash during use, resulting in the loss of all progress. Even more infuriatingly, the app will crash anytime you attempt to save your progress if you’ve done more than 3-4 minutes of work. If I want to add to a rendering, I have to save every time I make a change to avoid overwhelming the app and causing it to crash. Even then, it often crashes upon opening for no apparent reason. It creates a “restored” version of any file that crashes, but these restored copies wont open or load and are therefore useless. I use a brand new iPad Pro with the highest capabilities so this shouldn’t be an issue. This app is fantastic for viewing renderings on the go, but not making them.

Very nice, but not compatible??

This app is really great to have on a tablet, to do 3D projects. But what I can’t understand is why projects can’t be imported/exported between this and the (also Autodesk) AutoCAD tablet app. Shouldn’t this be a given?

Amazing App

FormIt is just an amazing program that allows the user that spends a few hours fiddling with it to discover a new, fast way to create structures that look beautiful.

I use FormIt in many ways but primarily to create perspective accurate shapes that are ultimately used in drawing/paint programs, like Procreate.

I strongly encourage everybody to try this great piece of software to explore its vast capabilities.
