In a previous post we got this comment;
Well Anonymous did you actually look??? It's the first one in the list...see below!!!
BTW: I thought the "I don't see the Bovine Template in my Family Editor" comment was hilarious!!!
Marcello from The Revit Complex sent me the image in response to that comment and oddly he thought I wouldn't post it... (silly Marcello, I guess you never saw the 'free cat' photo a friend said I wouldn't post!!! :-)
Just to add (more?) clarity to the propriety of modeling a cow, etc. in Revit...NO ONE INTIMATED THAT YOU SHOULD MODEL A CAR or COW OR ANY OTHER LIVESTOCK IN REVIT... That said & as an ironic FYI The (Revit) Factory actually asked Marcello to model a cow, for them to test Revit's wall hosting functionality!!! Scoreboard Cow!!!
Now a hearty "get a life" to another "Anonymous"; the 'A-Hole-Anonymous' (who is not the anonymous mentioned above), but the anonymous who called me 'fatty' (LOL) & who completely missed the point, probably by NOT reading the posting they commented on...
On to another comment: this one by someone with at least enough courage to post under their name; that said, their comment was: "Sure, you can excavate using spoon for a swimming pool too. But that would take years. No matter how open minded you are, creating consent like a car in Revit is not viable option economically at this moment."
...REALLY? First off it's 'content' but I get that was just a thoughtless typo in a less than thoughtful comment... Maybe consider (AND READ) what you write before spewing onto the world...
While that 'excavate with a spoon' comment may be clever, or funny; it is both wonderfully incorrect as well as an extremely myopic perspective that is simply a personal & limited outlook
...for several reasons:
1) They were paid for by clients!!! (Doh)
2) They were intended to show possibilities & how to use Revit at a very high level (which they do).
3) There are infinite possibilities for creation and who the fuck are you to say what is or isn't appropriate for someone to create? (No-one, that's who).
THERE ARE MANY KINDS OF PEOPLE IN THE WORLD AND THERE IS ROOM FOR ALL & ALL OF THEIR CREATIONS...HATERS NEED TO LIGHTEN UP!!!
EVEN CREATIVE ACTS THAT WE DON'T PERSONALLY LIKE OR BELIEVE IN MUST BE PROTECTED: KIND OF LIKE FREEDOM OF SPEECH, REMEMBER?
WE DON'T NEED TO AGREE WITH EVERYTHING OTHERS CREATE BUT WE MUST BE OPEN TO THEIR FREEDOM TO CREATE, OR AT LEAST OPEN TO THE EXISTENCE OF THE CREATION & VALIDITY THEREOF, AS THERE ARE PROBABLY GREAT LESSONS TO LEARN (AND DIFFERENT LESSONS FOR EVERYONE).
Yes there is freedom of speech, so all of the comments good/bad are welcomed, just know that:
WITH FREEDOM OF SPEECH COMES FREEDOM OF CONSEQUENCE(S).
Creativity is speech, just like all speech, including comments on blogs, because:
The stones we throw may just be aimed at ourselves.
AS LONG AS ONE PERSON THINKS SOMETHING IS WORTHY OF CREATING THAT IS ENOUGH REASON FOR IT'S EXISTENCE.
JUDGEMENT IS GREAT FOR KILLING IDEAS.
CREATING IS BEYOND JUDGEMENT.
Marcello said something wonderful at a recent LARUG: "I am about 'could', while others are about 'should'"... Whether he knows it or not that is what separates Artists from Idiots... Artists are concerned with doing & idiots are concerned with stifling & killing creativity.
That's the reason I don't answer "WHY" questions in classes, only "HOW" questions... Why's are left for after class, when time is not important.
Oh yeah: since the truck & the Telehandler WERE PAID FOR BY A CLIENT then I again suggest that taking a wider view of the world & it's potentials will prove a strategy to suffice much better... Remember that We, as individuals may not know it all...
Until you walk a mile in my shoes...right???!!!
