The Elephant in the room re-post

RE-POST OF The Elephant in the room post from Zach Kron of Autodesk. HTTP://BUILDZ.BLOGSPOT.COM/2010/04/ELEPHANT-IN-ROOM.HTML

The Elephant in the room

Marcello Sgambelluri has done what I think it is safe to say no one has done before in Revit. Yes, this is a 100% native Revit elephant. No Shit.

And it apparently wasn't enough to just model it . . . he made it parametric . . . and did a stop action animation.

Last year he did a 747 and a Lexus, so this year he wanted to push a little further.
I hope that this puts to rest the question "can you make [insert geomtric desctiption here] in Revit?" It's just not an interesting question anymore.
Yes, you can make it. Of course you still need to ask "Why?!?!", but yes, you can.

Marcello is the BIM Manager at John A Martin and Associates Structural Engineers in LA. He builds families to Beta Test revit in his spare time and has also spoken at AU about Revit.

We are humbled, Marcello, and look forward to what comes next.

In this case the question is definitely HOW! Care to share a little more about how you tackled this Marcello?
