Concept Stage Building Design with Autodesk FormIt Pro

If you have an AEC Collection, did you know you can use FormIt Pro to create conceptual designs for your building projects?

Concept Stage Building Design with Autodesk FormIt Pro

Model, Analyse, or Detail and design in real-time, remotely with your colleagues or clients in FormIt Pro.

FormIt Pro is a 3D modelling tool that allows you to generate conceptual massing or more detailed models for your project. Intelligent geo-location features enable you to link in a satellite map of your project site, perform solar and shadows analysis from local weather station information.

Developing your model in response to solar conditions can make you aware of any overheating issues that may arise in the finished building. There are also early-stage energy analysis tools ‘Insight’ integrated with FormIt Pro.

Applying materials, levels and model objects to your design is very easy with its simple User Interface. All of your work can then be imported directly into Revit and converted to intelligent BIM information.

For advanced users, FormIt Pro can be further enhanced using Dynamo visual scripting to automate repetitive tasks or modelling.

In this webinar we looked at:

  • Starting your first project
  • Modelling methods
  • Geo Location features
  • Sun & Shadow Analysis
  • Creating Materials
  • Using Layers
  • Using Dynamo
  • Remote Collaboration
  • Importing into Revit
