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

Version 18.0

Hello FormIt Fans!
We've got a fresh v18 release with some fresh FormIt content for you!

o Added an interactive tool to adjust the position of materials on surfaces.
o Added a tool to align the camera to the selected face.
o Added a gesture to Deselect All.
o Added the ability to import files from and export files to local iPad storage locations.
o Improved the connection to BIM 360 Docs, including:
• Added the ability to view FormIt models in the BIM 360 Document Management view.
• Added the ability to navigate nested folders when opening, importing, saving, and exporting to BIM 360 Docs.
• Improved performance when exchanging data with BIM 360 Docs.
o Zoom All and Zoom Extents now respond accordingly when geometry outside the active Group is hidden.
• Fixes
o Vastly improved performance when deleting Layers, and when undoing or redoing Layer deletion.
o Fixed an issue where Redo from the Main Sketch would redo operations in the wrong order in some scenarios.
o Fixed an issue where Undo/Redo would unexpectedly affect operations in deleted Groups.
o Fixed an issue where Orbit would move the camera in an unexpected path in some scenarios.
o Fixed an issue where Zoom All or Zoom Selection failed when editing a Group with the context hidden.
o Fixed an issue where placing primitive shapes and Content Library objects would exhibit unexpected orientations when the target destination had a custom workplane.
o Fixed an issue where faces would fail to highlight inside a Group when the entire solid body was selected.
o Fixed an issue where the Shadows toggle in the Sun + Shadows toolbar could get out-of-sync with the Shadows setting in Visual Styles.

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.

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?
