Last updated 2 months ago

Use FormIt and Revit together to move seamlessly between Schematic Design and Design Documentation phases.

Conceptual Massing in FormIt

  • FormIt objects become Revit Mass Families with materials applied. This supports the Wall by Face, Curtain System by Face, and Roof by Face workflow for creating detailed elements

  • FormIt Levels become Revit Levels and support Mass Floors, Floor by Face, and Floor Plan view creation

Conceptual Modeling with Revit content in FormIt

  • Groups in FormIt can be categorized to become Revit Families like: Generic, Furniture, Specialty Equipment, etc

  • Revit Families can be exported as FormIt Groups, and then in the future, automatically converted back to the original Revit Family

Iteration between FormIt and Revit projects

  • The FormIt Converter add-in allows you to place FormIt objects into the Revit template of your choice for easy update as the design evolves

  • The FormIt origin point uses the Revit base point for reliable placement of imported FormIt objects

  • Revit geometry can be exported to FormIt using SAT export options

  • Revit Families can be exported as FormIt Groups, and then in the future, automatically converted back to the original Revit Family
