I was at an art exhibit over the weekend and one of the artists was exploring the relationship between the finite and the infinite.

He postulated that the simplest finite expression we have is bianary language. ON or OFF. Yes or NO. 0 or 1. And from those simple choices, stacked one on top of the next, we reach infinity. Which got me thinking about computers and Revit. I had never given much thought to the idea that everything we do on our computers boils down to a binary expression....and from those simple choices, stacked one on top of the next, we develop our work, our designs, our lives...out to infinity. The concept stuck with me.

So in the spirit of the infinite, I wanted to look at how REVIT would deal with a MOBIUS STRIP....and thus far, I found that it deals with the form poorly. But it did generate some of the wackiest errors I have seen so far while using the program....like this one:
