Happy Third Birthday FormIt at AU 2015

Posted in customer, images, news 5 years ago

This year marked our fourth Autodesk University conference as the FormIt team - and the third "birthday" of the product! This year was all about adoption. We had at least nine customer-driven classes focused on FormIt 360 and a number of other classes where the app was used within other workflows. Videos of some of these classes should be online later this month. While AU is exhausting, on a personal level it is a great feeling to meet and speak to so many passionate users. FormIt 360 Glasses I teased out a video from the conference showing FormIt 360 working on the iPad Pro. While it works as-is, we are working hard on an official release taking advantage of the full resolution, split screens and the Apple Pencil! Coming soon...

The classes were standing room only (see a photo from Mike Engel's class below) For Carl Storms and Kal Houhou's classes - extra sessions were added.

Last but not least, we hosted our first (and hopefully annual) FormIt Throwdown on the show floor. Brandon WlosinskiMike Engel and Kal Houhou all put in a great effort to design a wedding chapel in FormIt in under 30 minutes. Everyone had a great time. The free-flowing FormIt Fizz's sure helped! Brandon won the judges over with his "Chapel of the Hunka Hunka Burning Love."  Apparently, Mike wants a re-match next year
