I am working in Revit 2010 and trying to model architectural columns that are not vetical. I tried to make the column in plan view and switch to elevation or 3D view to rotate it but get an error message saying that columns cannot be rotated. Any suggestions as to how I can make leaning columns? Thanks!

To be more specific: I have discovered that I can rotate the column, but only in an axis perpendicular to the work plane in which it was created. Is there any way to change the axis of rotation to one that is not in the original work plane?

There are two types of columns, "Structural and Architectural Columns", maybe this is what you need.

Typhoon has you covered for materials but not for leaning the column.  In some families, you can simply switch off the "keep vertical" switch and then you can rotate it.  This will not work well with a column because you will want the top and bottom aligned with your levels. 

 

The solution would be to either create a family with some parametrics to allow you to do what you want or to do an in-place family.  If you only have a few locations for this, in-place will be your best choice.  Simply do a blend where you define the column shape at the top and bottom planes.  Mr Spont has an example in the similar thread listed below:
