Setting Up the Project
FormIt provides two ways to save your work
You can also open, save, import and export files from a local drive.
Or, you can save your work to A360 Drive. This will allow you to share data outside of your office.
We will use local saving for loading datasets in the FormIt Primer, but you can use your A360 drive account to log into FormIt and save your work as you move through the course.
Saving Your Work
After downloading and installing FormIt following the directions found here, open the program
Log into FormIt using your own Autodesk 360 credentials in the User Identity menu in the Action Tool Bar
Start a new 'sketch' by clicking the File button > New
Click the File button > Save Sketch > to A360 drive to save this to the FormIt folder in your A360 Drive
Name your FormIt Sketch
Each time you save to A360 two things happen:
- A FormIt AXM file is saved to the FormIt folder in A360
- An RVT file will appear in the FormIt folder in A360. We will review another way to bring FormIt into Revit.
Change the Units between Imperial and Metric using the Settings Menu in the Action Tool Bar
