Conceptual BIM with Revit

Make the connection between Schematic Design in FormIt and Design Documentation in Revit seamless.

Conceptual Massing in FormIt

  • FormIt objects become Revit Mass Families which support Wall by Face, Curtain System by Face, and Roof by Face
  • FormIt Levels become Revit Levels and support Mass Floors, Floor by Face, and Floor Plan view creation
  • FormIt models with materials applied import to Revit with materials intact

Conceptual Modeling with Revit content in FormIt

  • Groups in FormIt can be categorized to become Revit Families like: Generic, Furniture, Specialty Equipment, etc.
  • FormIt models can be imported into the Revit Family editor to create RFA of any category in addition to RVT
  • Revit Families can be exported as FormIt Groups, and then in the future, automatically converted back to the original Revit Family

Iteration between FormIt and Revit projects

  • When you Import FormIt to Revit, FormIt objects appear in the Revit template of your choice
  • The Import FormIt to Revit command adds FormIt models to an existing Revit project, so you can update often
  • The FormIt origin point and the Revit base point are the same for reliable placement of Imported FormIt objects
  • The Group Name in FormIt is remembered upon Revit Import for use with Filters

Iteration between Revit and FormIt

  • Revit System Families can be exported to FormIt using SAT export options
  • Revit Families can be exported as FormIt Groups, and then in the future, automatically converted back to the original Revit Family
