A new update to our iPad and Web apps

Posted in Android, iOS, news, Uncategorized, web by Tom Vollaro 5 years ago

We have a new update available for our iOS and Web apps today!

  • Many bugs have been fixed, especially with the real-time collaboration feature. So if you have not tried it yet, grab a friend and start collaborating! If you missed the original collaboration release, check out the video below and blog post.
  • Take our survey and let us know what you think of FormIt! You can take the survey from either the Getting Started page in the app, or right here.
  • Our support forums have been moved from Get Satisfaction to http://forums.autodesk.com. The Get Satisfaction site is still active, but will be shut down by the end of the month.

And for our Android users... we have an exciting update coming very soon. You will have the new 3D sketching, weather analysis and Lollipop support, among other updates. Stay tuned!

Claire, the SAT import only works on the iPad version.

Claire Simpson 2015-02-24 14:31:18

Great thanks. I exported the SAT file from Revit and have uploaded it to a360 drive. I don't see an option within formIT to import a file from a360 or even an SAT file? I am using the desktop version of FormIT. Any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks

There is a way to do that now. If you export your Revit project to the SAT file format, you can then upload that file to your Autodesk 360 account and then import it into a FormIt scene (but the file needs to be less than 15 mb)

But we are working on some much smoother workflows with Revit. stay tuned!

Really enjoy using FormIT! Are there any plans to develop some sort of work flow that will allow the user to import the revit file back into formit after it has been updated?

Mark, This is a common request, we have it logged and we are looking into it. thanks!

I like the new features, but there is one aspect that continues to thwart me..

When I pick a something - face, edge, object... I feel I should get temporary dimension from something - nearby edges, the next level, and when I click to move something, e.g. an face, it gives me the ability to input a dimension - but from the previous location, which doesn't help much to get the length I desire when it won't allow me to reference the other existing faces...

Please help!

Да, много возможностей, как мы говорим, in the pipeline и будут добавлены в ближайших релизах. "The future's so bright I gotta wear shades" ;-)

Kal, there is no technical limit to number of users, but it could get confusing and/or slow as you add more users. How many do you plan on having? As for camera following, you can do it from the iPad by swiping right to left on a user's name in the palette.

We are always looking to talk to users that are using FormIt on real projects. Would you be willing to meet with us?

I started a collaborative session we have for now 2 users on the Web and one from an iPad is there a limit of users? Comment following camera works only from the Web App is it by design? Great Tool we are going to experiment this workflow during one of our coming design meeting with Client...

Thank you for the comments. We are looking into options for translating the app into different languages, including Russian

Последние обновления очень полезные. Было бы хорошо сделать Что бы программа поддерживала русский язык, у русскоязычных людей она очень популярна. Еще не хватает возможности создавать фигуры вращения и делать array to patch

И будет хорошо если добавиться возможность скруглять углы

Очень не хватает возможности рисовать на виде сверху поверх фонового изображения свободную линию, которую можно extrude

Oh yes..we have vertex editing coming and much more!

Constantin 5 years ago

Great news ! I am excited to hear about an Android update coming soon. I hope you will enable the vertices selecting and editing tools just like in the IOS version. It really enhances the freedom of design. Looking forward to!
