FormIt 360 – Schematic Design Process

When: Feb. 24, 2016
12:00-12:45pm
Online Webcast

FormIt 360 is the conceptual design tool from Autodesk that is bridging the gap to Revit. In this webinar we will explain the process of importing a FormIt model into Revit in order to further develop the design iterations and how to export the model from Revit back into FormIt. Designing with FormIt will eliminate the “throw away design model” mentality at your firm.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Import a FormIt model into Revit for further development
  • Leverage FormIt groups inside Revit as families or masses
  • Maintain use of existing SketchUp content in both FormIt and Revit

Opening the Revit Productivity Box

When: Thu.

Where: initial.aec office

Description:

Like any other software, Revit has tools in it to save time and increase productivity which increases your ROI. My question to you, as a new or experienced user, is this: Are you truly taking advantage of everything that Revit can do at any given time? In this workshop, we will look at all kinds of tools and processes to relieve headaches and get things done in a more efficient manner.

Key Learning Objectives

  • We will look at multiple tools and make sure that certain options are being taken advantage of to increase productivity.
  • We will highlight the most efficient ways of working within Revit processes and learn to avoid the ways in which users can get bogged down; for, as in any process, there are always ways to work more expediently.
  • In Revit there are certain right-clicks and keyboard shortcuts that everyone should know. Most users will never stumble upon these pathways to efficiency; however, in this course, they will be revealed.
  • We will provide a “one-stop-shop” document that helps you, or your staff, remember all the tips & tricks covered in the course.
