FormIt 360 Pro is becoming a preferred conceptual modeling tool due to its seamless integration with Autodesk's Revit, Infraworks 360, and Insight 360 software. This course teaches FormIt 360 and FormIt 360 Pro fundamentals and techniques. Software required: FormIt 360, FormIt 360 Pro.
Have you ever wanted to produce a conceptual 3D model that would be loose and flexible, using an intuitive set of modeling tools that didn't get in the way of your creative flow, and at the same time provided seamless transfer of data between software platforms such as Revit, Infraworks 360, Insight 360, and others? In this course, Introduction to Conceptual Design in Autodesk FormIt 360 Pro, you'll learn how to produce a conceptual model of a pool and pool house, using the same skills required to produce any conceptual 3D model using a real-world project. First, you'll set the stage for your conceptual model by specifying a geographic location, perfect for site analysis. Next, you'll begin producing your conceptual model as you learn to place and mold objects into conceptual form. Finally, you'll add materials preparing your model for presentation. When you're finished with this course, you'll not only be familiar with the fundamental skills necessary to produce conceptual models in FormIt 360 or FormIt 360 Pro, but you'll also be able to apply those skills in producing highly informative conceptual models, geographically located, prepared for site and energy analysis, and ready for presentation. Software required: FormIt 360, FormIt 360 Pro.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Shane Foote and welcome to my course Introduction to Conceptual Design in Autodesk Formit 360 Pro. I'm a design and visualization coordinator at Guernsey and I've been practicing and teaching 3D modeling and design in the AC industry for over 20 years now and I thoroughly enjoy it. Formit 360 is becoming a preferred conceptual modeling tool in the industry due to its seamless integration with Autodesk Revit, InfraWorks 360 and Insight 360 software solutions. This course is designed to get you modeling quickly and proficiently in Formit 360 enabling you to develop complex designs for site and energy analysis, as well as for presentation purposes. The topics we'll be covering in this course are applicable to both the Formit 360 and Formit 360 Pro versions of this software. Some of the major topics that we will cover include user interface navigation, georeferencing the project, basic and advanced modeling tools and adding materials for presentation. By the end of this course you'll have a solid understanding of the tools and concepts necessary to create visually engaging conceptual models for analysis and presentation purposes. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Formit 360 with the Introduction to Conceptual Design in Autodesk Formit 360 Pro course at Pluralsight.
