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'.
