Autodesk Forma – Enhancing workflow efficiency and collaboration for design professionals

Autodesk Forma - Enhancing workflow efficiency and collaboration for design professionals

Autodesk recently launched its new cloud platform, Forma, to help AEC businesses and individuals manage and collaborate on their design projects more efficiently and effectively. With Forma, users can access their design projects from anywhere, making it easier for teams to work remotely and collaborate seamlessly.

Forma’s capabilities target the planning and designing phases of a project. AI algorithms and automation will enable professionals to explore design ideas, automate repetitive tasks, and assess the environmental factors around the structure.

What is Forma?

Autodesk Forma is a cloud-based platform that offers a suite of design and collaboration tools for architects, engineers, and designers. It enables fast, informed decision-making on various project aspects, such as sustainability, while also boosting overall efficiency.

In Autodesk’s press release, Amy Bunszel, Executive Vice President of Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Design Solutions at Autodesk said “Forma gives architecture professionals the agility to work iteratively rather than sequentially between planning and detailed design, supercharging what they can accomplish. Forma unlocks great value for our customers, from rapidly evaluating a large set of factors–from sun and wind to noise and operational energy–to offloading computational tasks to the cloud and connecting with Revit.”

Autodesk Forma capabilities

Autodesk Forma’s ability to work with project design data enables professionals to analyze multiple design options and choose the most efficient and sustainable solution. Forma addresses the growing need for collaboration and coordination in the AEC industry with its capabilities.

Let’s look at Forma’s initial capabilities-

Freeform building design tools

Forma’s design tools enable users to quickly conceptualize their design ideas and create intricate 3D models in minutes.


Forma significantly accelerates the exploration of design concepts by providing easy-to-use yet powerful parametric tools. Users can swiftly create multiple design concepts and variations, ensuring that all possible solutions are explored.

Real-time data analysis

Forma can analyze various environmental factors, including sunlight, wind, and microclimate, at an early stage of the design process. This enables firms to meet their sustainability targets by making informed decisions about environmental impacts.

Forma simplifies the process of starting a new BIM project, as users can easily input their own data and Forma will generate a 3D model. Additionally, users can import Revit and AutoCAD files into Forma without altering their existing workflows. The platform includes a Revit add-in that enables seamless file syncing between the two programs.

Forma provides AI-powered insights that simplify the exploration of design concepts, offload repetitive tasks, and help evaluate environmental factors surrounding a building site.

Autodesk Forma will help users give life to their design ideas and create intricate 3D models in minutes. In addition to streamlining workflows, it also performs data analyses of various environmental factors at an early stage of the design process, helping firms make informed decisions for a positive sustainability impact.

Forma simplifies the process of starting a new BIM project. Users can easily input their own data to generate 3D structural models, 3D terrain models, and more. It also enables seamless file syncing with Revit and AutoCAD files without altering existing workflows. Forma facilitates better communication and teamwork among project stakeholders, leading to more efficient and sustainable designs.

Generating 3D models in minutes!

Technology has enabled us to 3D models in mere minutes. Specialized software and the power of Artificial Intelligence can be leveraged to generate 3D models quickly and accurately, improve collaboration, and significantly reduce project costs.

Generating 3D models in minutes allows for prototyping with multiple parameters and testing its feasibility in the real world. This gives designers the freedom to test different scenarios and alternatives, and ultimately arrive at a better design faster. Furthermore, 3D models can be easily shared and reviewed with clients, investors, and team members, enabling better communication and collaboration throughout the design process.
