Join us for a presentation by Tom Vollaro, Senior Product Manager at Autodesk on FormIt 360, Autodesk’s new product for conceptual BIM. On the surface, FormIt 360 can be compared to a competitive product like SketchUp or Rhino. However, there is way more to the story. FormIt 360 runs on multiple platforms (iOS, Android, Web and Windows), allows for integrated analysis, and has a clean back and forth interoperability with Revit. In this presentation, we will cover these aspects and much more, including how FormIt can be used as a general purpose modeler for construction and other workflows besides architectural concept design.

We'll also have a presentation by Zachary Kron on Dynamo. Dynamo is a general purpose graphical algorithm editor that helps designers, architects, artists, and engineers visually script behavior. Dynamo is both a standalone design environment and a parametric extension to other applications such as Autodesk Revit and FormIt. Dynamo users can create geometric systems, analyze existing projects, and turn data into built forms.

Please bring ideas for topics for discussion or demonstration that you'd like to see covered at an upcoming meeting.

Please RSVP if you'd like to attend. Autodesk has been kind enough to provide pizza, salad and beverages for those in attendance.
