Easy access to site information:

  • 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

Experience a more continuous BIM workflow:
  • Store and share designs in the cloud using Autodesk® 360 cloud services

FormIt is an intuitive, easy to use mass modeling application helping designers make informed decisions while accessing site and climate data. The building and site aware app allows designers to sketch proposed design options that can be compared with program requirements and then shared with the project team for continued collaboration through Autodesk® 360.
