This morning, that reality check came in the form of Ironman. You can head over to 'Revit Swat' to see how it was done. Impressive!

Many of us have seen it before, but we can't talk about complex Revit modelling without referring to Marcello Sgambelluri's Revit Elephant. This thing isn't just a rigid model, oh no, its parametric!
You can find more information about this crazy elephant at Buildz blog. You will also find a stop motion animation of it moving!
