FormIt Friday Episode 11: Friday 12/18! With Carl Storms


UPDATE: Video from this FormIt Friday now live – Link at bottom of this post

I am honoured and excited to have been asked to share some of what I talked about at AU 2015 a few weeks ago in Vegas with all the FormIteers on the last FormIt Friday of 2015.

This is going to be a recap session of what I did at AU, as well as a chance to talk about some of the class feed back. As well as getting to spend a little time to focus on some things that there just wasn’t enough time to fit in at AU.

Here are all the details from the FormIt 360 Blog.

FormIt Friday Episode 11: Friday 12/18! With Carl Storms!

Hi Everyone – We’re getting close to closing out 2015 and we want to have one more FormIt Friday to send the year off in style.

We’ve been lucky enough to make the acquaintance of power user Carl Storms. (aka the BIMsider) He led not one, but by popular demand, TWO AU sessions of his cleverly and aptly titled session: “FormIt + Revit = bye bye SketchUp’. Obviously the class resonated with many attendees and he’s agreed to share his knowledge with those who didn’t attend AU.

Here is the information about what my AU class was all about:

  • Topic: Revit + FormIt = Bye Bye SketchUp!
  • Class Summary: For years there has been a conceptual massing part of Revit that would allow designers to do many of the things they can do in SketchUp inside of Revit directly, but this has never really caught on and designers keep returning to SketchUp for ease of use. Now with the help of FormIt you can take your project from conceptual design all the way to construction documents with these two connected products without having to leave the .RVT file format. You can begin the conceptual design in FormIt and once the design is settled continue the working drawings process inside Revit. There is also the added benefit of being able to work on FormIt on your iPad or on any computer in a web based version, this allows for anytime anywhere design to happen. FormIt also has a feature that allows real time team collaboration on a design. This means the multiple members of a team can be simultaneously working on the same file from different locations, and different FormIt platforms.
  • Class Length: 60 Minutes
  • Class Type: Instructional Demo
  • Instructor: Carl Storms – Senior Applications Expert, IMAGINiT Technologies (yup its me!)
