by Shane Foote

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.

What you'll learn

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.
