We experimented with Hok’s tutorial with importing from Rhino To Revit.  The most complex form that we have experimented with to date is an ellipse. Complex curved planar surfaces can not be read by Revit to transform into walls and windows. Here were our steps in successfully uploading an editable object into Revit.

Created an ellipsoid in Rhino 4.0

Saved as a .sat file

uploaded it as a Revit family under massing model

saved the massing model and uploaded it as a family into a project file

Under massing selected “place mass”. make sure place on work plane is selected in the options bar

click the screen!

We changed our ellipsoid into a curtain wall!
