Posted in images by Tom

While we do not have a FormIt Friday webinar this week, we DO have another great design from our Principal Software Engineer (and architect) Markus Bonn. He showed us another practical design with FormIt last year.

FormIt for Apple Watch

Posted in news, video by Tom

When we started building FormIt back in 2013, people told us "no-one will want to build 3D models on the iPad!" Well, I would say after a million downloads and many thousands of monthly users - we have proven the naysayers wrong. After the announcement of the Apple Watch the ...
