What is an AXM file?
An AXM file is an architectural model created using Autodesk FormIt. It contains 3D shapes that comprise a model, and it may also include 2D lines and images. AXM files can be opened in FormIt and imported into Autodesk Revit.
Autodesk FormIt is a 3D modeling application that architects use to prototype building and site designs. To do so, they draw, place, and manipulate 3D shapes that represent a building or building component. Architects may also import 2D images into their models, for use as street maps, textures, or backgrounds, and add 2D lines that represent measurements.
FormIt models, which are referred to in FormIt as sketches, are saved as AXM files. In addition to being able to open and edit AXM files in FormIt, architects can import the files into Autodesk Revit, a building information modeling application that architects, engineers, and contractors use to create a cross-discipline construction model.
How to open an AXM file
You can open an AXM file in Autodesk FormIt Pro (Windows) and Autodesk FormIt (Web, iOS). To open an AXM file in FormIt Pro, select File → Open Sketch → Locally... from the program's menu bar. Then, navigate to and open your AXM file.
