FormIt Pro is an intuitive surface modeler, which can be used to model conceptual designs and move the conceptual work (Masses) into Revit software for further development as a BIM project. Or, simply use FormIt Pro as an alternative to SketchUp for smoother model integration with Revit.

Use FormIt Pro to:

  • Facilitate real-time collaboration between team members while working in the Cloud
  • Perform Energy Analyses, when used in conjunction with Insight
  • Enhance Revit models, using family categories

During this presentation, we will look at options for how to use the software and review the current status of its development.
