For years there has been a conceptual massing part of Revit software that could enable designers to do many of the things they can do in Trimble’s SketchUp modeling program directly inside of Revit software, but this has never really caught on and designers keep returning to SketchUp for ease of use. Now with the help of FormIt software you can take your project from conceptual design all the way to construction documents with these 2 connected products without having to leave the .RVT file format. You can begin the conceptual design in FormIt software and once the design is settled continue the working drawings process inside Revit software. There is also the added benefit of being able to work in FormIt software on your iPad or any computer in a web-based version, enabling for anytime-anywhere design to happen. FormIt software also has a feature that enables 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.

Drawing on his nearly 20 years of experience in architecture, engineering, and construction, Carl Storms provides a practical and well-rounded understanding of Building Information Modeling (BIM) to clients. He’s worked in residential and commercial architecture, as well as in construction, and he has nearly 10 years of teaching experience at the collegiate and industry levels. This experience aids him in providing the business case for BIM to clients as well as helping them make the most of their collaboration, coordination, and design tools and processes. Through implementations, instruction, mentoring, seminar presentations, whitepapers, and more, Storms assists clients with the adoption of design technology and BIM processes. As someone who truly enjoys the process of building information modeling, Carl spreads his love of all things BIM on Twitter @theBIMsider, his blog: www.theBIMsider.com, as a co-host on two AEC Industry Podcasts: The Simply Complex Podcast - Conference Edition, as well as BluePrints a podcast sharing ideas and knowledge about the AEC industry.
