FormIt architectural modeling software enables architects to sketch, collaborate, analyze, and share early-stage design concepts. FormIt Pro is available only in the Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection.


With Autodesk FormIt web and mobile app, you can sketch, collaborate, analyze, and iterate early-stage design concepts on your tablet or web browser. FormIt connects conceptual design with Building Information Modeling (BIM) processes for more fluid workflows.

Work smarter from the beginning with BIM-based conceptual design

  • Connect your design concepts to BIM with native Autodesk Revit integration
  • Design with smart objects that flow smoothly between FormIt 360 and Revit
  • Work on models concurrently with other team members with FormIt Collaboration

Create design concepts with intuitive tools

  • Capture design ideas quickly and easily using familiar 3D sketching and push-pull direct manipulation
  • Add more realism and context to your models using a selection of materials and colors
  • Use location awareness to import a map underlay of the physical site to your model

Analyze your designs earlier than ever

  • Run analysis at an early design stage to iterate faster and optimize your designs earlier
  • Understand performance from day one with energy and solar analysis
  • See the relationship between design concept and site location with shadow and sun path studies

Sketch in 3D anywhere, anytime

  • Work fluidly on your iPad® or Android tablet—in front of clients, on project sites, while traveling, or any time inspiration strikes
  • Transition between tablet and web browser smoothly so you can work on the same model when and where it suits you
  • Save designs in the cloud using the Autodesk® A360 app, or save to your local PC
