Autodesk, Inc.
Transfer your Autodesk Forma™ proposals into Autodesk® Revit® projects and use Forma to analyze your Revit designs.

General Usage Instructions

In Forma, from the list of your proposals in the left-side panel, left-click on the 3-dot menu of the proposal you'd like to work on and choose “Send to Revit” from the menu.

Open Revit and create a new project. In the Massing and Site tab, find the Load Proposal button. (Note, if you are loading a Forma proposal into an existing Revit project, the existing Revit location data will be overwritten by the GIS coordinate system used to locate the Forma project)

Note: while the add-in is regularly being improved, current conversions are 

  • Basic Buildings and Released Line Buildings are converted to Walls, Floors, and Roofs
  • 3D Sketch Buildings are converted to loaded mass families with mass floors
  • Line Buildings, Vegetation, context buildings, and ShapeDiver elements are Converted to Generic Models (Direct Shapes)
  • Parking is converted to Parking Components (Testfit parking is currently not supported)
  • Terrain is converted to Toposolids in Revit 2024 (toposurface in previous versions)
