Top 3 Features of FormIt 360

Posted in new features 5 years ago

The buzz and excitement around FormIt 360 and FormIt 360 Pro has been off the charts since we launched last month! What makes FormIt so amazing? A LOT. Here are three of the top features FormIt 360 users love the most. 1. It's truly connected to BIM Tired of importing useless blobs of geometry into Revit? Improve your workflow by connecting your FormIt 360 conceptual designs into BIM with native Revit integration. "The Smart Objects flow to Revit allows the design to be translated to the BIM model without duplication of work efforts," says Mike Engel of Elness Swenson Graham Architects. "This allows for more consistent translation of design to documentation." Bonus: convert your SketchUp files with FormIt Converter so you can reuse existing work.

2. It's web-based AND mobile Use FormIt 360 on your iPad or Android while you're on a plane, train, or automobile... or on a client site. Save your work in the cloud (or locally if you're offline), then pick up where you left off on your web browser back at your desk. Anthony Caputo of Array Architects uses FormIt 360 on iPad in client meetings. "I'll pull the FormIt model up on the screen, move it around, and share it with the client to create a live interactive experience. My team can pull that into a model and run analysis, add information, and keep the process going."

3. It's FREE! We love free stuff, and you get a lot of it with FormIt 360: building-aware 3D sketching tools, advanced geometry, connection to BIM, the tablet apps, and FormIt Converter are a few of my favorites. Upgrade to FormIt 360 Pro for $300/year to unlock energy and solar analysis and real-time collaboration. You can download FormIt 360 or start a free 30-day trial of Pro right here.
