What's New

Set the Origin for your Main Sketch and Group Instances with X,Y,Z Axes
•Feature summary: You can now see and set the red, green and blue axes that define the 0,0,0 point of your sketch. You also have a way to define the 0,0,0 origin point of any group instance. Then you can quickly ‘reset’ the 0,0,0 point to the original location. You can turn on and off the graphics for the axes.

Sketch using a Workplane
•Feature summary: When you set your axes in the main sketch, or in a group you will also be setting a workplane. This workplane will stretch out to infinity and provide a plane to sketch on without snapping or inferencing to elements behind it. Turning off the grid will turn off the special snapping associated with a workplane.

Unique Scale for each Group Instance
•Feature summary:  You can now scale any group instance and maintain the geometric relationship between different instances of the group even though they are different sizes.

Unique Materials for each Group Instance
•Feature summary: You now have a quick way to differentiate one group instances from others by painting with a material (if there is not yet a material defined for faces inside the group). This is useful for displaying an instance differently from other instances.

Control Contrast of Edges
•Feature summary: You can use sliders to control how dark the lines in your FormIt sketch appear. There are separate sliders for silhouette edges and for all other edges.

App Description

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
