Revit + FormIt = Bye Bye SketchUp! – Repeat class added for AU 2015


I just wanted to send out a quick post to let everyone know that AU has added Repeat of my session “Revit + FormIt = Bye Bye SketchUp”.

The repeat is on Tuesday Dec. 1st from 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm – Marcello 4501b Level 4. “AS13981 – Revit + FormIt = Bye Bye SketchUp (Repeat)”

The original session is now full  “AS9579 – Revit + FormIt = Bye Bye SketchUp”. The session is offered on Thursday Dec. 3rd from 3:00 – 4:00 pm – Delfino 4104 Level 4.

Here is some more info on what the class is 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!)

Hope to see you all there!
