This lab is designed to give users hands-on experience with FormIt software. We will go step-by-step through creating geometries in FormIt, bringing geometries in from other programs, modeling them together to form a cohesive model utilizing basic and advanced tools, creating and applying materials, adding levels, reporting different object properties, grouping objects, arraying objects, running energy and daylight analyses, starting a sharing session with others, and then transitioning the model to Revit software. You will gain firsthand experience with utilizing this new and powerful toolset that can literally travel anywhere with you.
- Learn basic functions of FormIt
- Discover advantages of Pro features
- Discover difference between existing products and how they fit into a FormIt workflow
- Learn how to create your own FormIt workflow
Brandon Wlosinski serves as the manager of Virtual Design and Construction at Berkebile Nelson Immenschuh McDowell (BNIM). He graduated from Iowa State University just over 2 years ago with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. While at Iowa State, he spent 6 years working in information services. As he developed this hybrid background, Wlosinski explored new architectural applications. This knowledge of architecture and deep understanding of technology enable him to support BNIM’s reputation as an innovative national design firm. While supporting the day-to-day technological operations at BNIM, he explores emerging technology and new digital practices, including Building Information Modeling (BIM). Wlosinski’s passion for digital technologies and communication technologies, and how they intersect with the urban environment, give him insight into how to capitalize on technology to increase interaction with citizens and responsibly use the city’s resources for growth.
