Welcome back to another edition of the Revit MEP Skullfuck!

I've been allowing dickless fucktards to get me off track lately (that's what dickless fucktards are for after all) - but I recently received a massive project that (despite what Revit dick-sockets keep telling me about the inevitability of Revit) is not only in ACAD, but also came along with a large enough fee (due mostly to an extremely short lead time) to actually make a profit - and a tidy one at that.

It's about time, since the vast majority of our projects seem to end up in the hole as architects and their lackeys Revit even the simplest projects into oblivion.  In this case, they aren't going to be involved at all (thank god) otherwise they would almost certainly spend the entire fee (and the next decade) modeling it down to the gnat's ass.

This project will be taking most of my (and at least one other persons) time, however I still have a half-dozen other projects to work on in parallel with it, only one (well, technically two) of which are supposed to be in Revit (despite not having the fee or any reason to be), all of which will get completed in ACAD - and anyone having a problem with that will promptly be told to 'fuck off'.

If just this one project were in Revit, the schedule would be unattainable - even by a whole team of veteran Reviteers, while the others sat on the back burner.  Instead, they will all be completed, on time, and under budget.  Some people have expressed concern over whether or not this is possible - but I have to laugh, because I've been in this same situation so many times by this point that (while I am aware of how much work will be necessary) I am not the least bit concerned about my ability to knock them all out (and then some).

Some might feel confident enough in their Revit skills to say the same, and more power to them - just get that shit out of my face.

Next time: 'Why Revit has single-handedly been responsible for every disaster and atrocity in recent history'.

The Ballad of Tony & Wayne

While the intention of this blog was primarily to vent frustration, and I didn't really care if anyone ever read it (and cared even less if anyone agreed or disagreed with me), it has been good to get feedback from a handful of designers/engineers (and even pricks like the Revit Fag).

My recent rebuttal to the Revit Fag's comment garnered two comments - one from Electrical Design Engineer 'Tony' who appears to be in solidarity with myself and what I'm willing to wager is the vast majority of the design community, and one from anal-lube mouth application specialist first class 'Wayne King' (he didn't say what he actually does) who was butt hurt that I would dare to call people out for being cheerleaders and apologists for Autodesks shittiest piece of software to date.

Wait a minute... am I being trolled here?  Wayne King = WAyNeKING = WANKING!

If that's a coincidence, then it's a fucking hilarious one.  It would also explain why he was so concerned with the scorn I heap upon people, because growing up with a name like that would almost certainly result in him being especially sensitive to insults.

From his comment (and my responses):

'What a fucked up asshole you are sir!'

 Thank you for saying so!

 'If you have so much trouble getting Revit to work you must be some sort of fucking retard.' 

 I know right?  There's no way it could be the result of limitations or shortcomings on the part of the software, or it's developers.

'Granted it has limitations'

Wait - I thought it was because I was some sort of fucking retard... now I'm confused.

 'but blaming everything on your pathetic inabilities to model your way out of a paper bag?'

When did I say I couldn't model in it?  In fact, I've had several posts where I praised (well - acknowledged anyway) Revit's modeling tools, family editor, etc. - the problem is that I could 'model' all day long, and still be no closer to completing a project.


'It's obvious that you have had some sort of education'


'but I really wonder if you paid any attention past kindergarten'

 Yeah - it got kind of boring, especially considering that I was already reading at a college level by the time I started 1st grade.

'You seem to really get off on bagging people anonymously'

 True, but only those who deserve it.  You have to remember - I was using Revit for several years before I started this blog, and it was the culmination of reading dozens (if not hundreds) of blogs and comments full of derision for anyone who dared point out that the software was simply not delivering on Autodesk's promises.

For fucks sake - for the first few releases we had, our Plumbing designers couldn't even slope pipe (and still have their fittings connect correctly).  This wasn't any kind of shortcoming on our designers part - it was totally overlooked by developers who obviously had no idea what they were doing.

'well here you go, in return for those who won't or can't, back at you'

 Here we go...

'I hope you balls fester'

I hope you grammar gets better.

'(that's if you have any - you certainly like running down you employer and their clients with impunity).

Does the 'r' key on your keyboard not work in conjunction with you or something?
'Maybe you dick will drop off'

Maybe you grammar improve.

'but then, its (it's) probably so small, most people would think you were a girl if they saw it.'

Ask your mom, she certainly saw it last night.

'You could, if you tried, be fairly amusing, some of the posts here actually made me smile.'

The intention wasn't to be amusing, but sometimes you have to laugh to keep from stabbing.

The continued, personal attacks however lead me to the conclusion that, you are sir, nothing more than a cowardly cunt.

Like I said, they fired the first shot(s), and now they are getting their comeuppance.  If you think I'm
a cowardly cunt, you should probably take a look at some of the other blogs and posts that I've referred to in the past.  I would've called those people cunts, but it would be an insult to cunts.

Moderate that you bastard!

Alright - next time it's back to business, I've been letting people get me off track.  Fuck them, fuck Revit, and if you don't like what I'm saying - then the general direction you should fuck is 'off'.

'The Revit Kid' Strikes Back

It took a while  - but I apparently finally got the attention of one 'Jeffrey Pinheiro' AKA 'The Revit Kid' AKA 'The Revit Faggot'.

I re-posted his comments (with my responses) below:

"First, thanks for the post and the traffic my way!"   (No problem faggot).

"I will have you know that I have been using Revit professionally (as in, to create REAL WORLD BUILDINGS that HAVE BEEN CONSTRUCTED) for over five years. Long before you started posting on this blog."  (And I was doing Electrical Design for nearly 10 before I started this blog - in addition to about 5 more years of various technical and engineering jobs.  What he has been doing for the last five years is to waste peoples time babbling about 'BIM' nonstop, and shitting on anyone who dares oppose him).

"I have no problems with people disagreeing with me, or even calling me a self-absorbed douche bag motherfucker, but I will not allow meaningless and uneducated attacks on my professional credentials, character, educations, and experience."  (And I 'will not allow' pretentious assholes to get away with nurturing an environment that is hostile to otherwise productive, dedicated, and talented designers).

"Having worked side by side with other MEP Engineers using Revit for the past five years (on REAL WORLD buildings in a REAL WORLD office) I would love to chat about your experiences and share ideas in a professional and mature conversation." (And I'd love to punch this motherfucker so hard that they have to pick his teeth out of the inside of the back of his fucking skull in order to identify him by his dental records - but based on the responses I've gotten from other MEP engineers and designers, I can guarantee that I'd have to get at the end of an extremely long line to do so).

"P.S. For more information on my professional and academic credentials here are some links:"

 (P.S. - after reading his 'credentials' I remain unimpressed.  This is a guy who, until recently, has been going to school, and managed to get himself a job at a firm that apparently has projects with infinite budgets and lead times.  Back over here in the reality that I live in, I was expected to figure out Revit on my own (or go back to school), and figure out how to get projects out the door, despite having a building full of architects (not unlike Jeffrey here) who spend all day long jerking off to BIM models, and are nowhere near completion when the projects are due - and even when they do get done, the building gets built based on 2D drawings, and field-adjustments get made that negate almost all of the benefits of having a 3D model in the first place.  As I have said repeatedly - I don't care if these people want to stick their dicks in the Revit Meat Grinder, but when they smile and tell me that I should try it, I have to 'Just Say No'.)
