As in a spiral.  Is there is way to sweep in a 3D spiral path?

 I'm trying to model a spring ina vibration isolator detail.

You don't say what version you're using, but the classical way is to model the first quarter as a sweep in plan, rotate it in elevation, mirror and rotate to get the second quarter, mirror and rotate these to get the next two quarters.  You now have the first turn that you can copy up.

I believe that you can do 3d sweeps in 2010, but I have not tried this yet.

That's a very clever work-around!

 I have both RAC 2009 and RAC 2010.  I'd be using 2010 except that I'm in the 11th hour on a project and 2010's new interface so far has been an exercise in frustration! Maybe I'll use it on the next project, but I'd guess that I'll burn up days learning thenew interface.

 BTW this is a useful web-based aid to figure out where the commands where moved to in 2010:

Ther's also a 'Where is my command' help item in the drop down menu next to the help button in Revit.  Not as pretty, but it shows where all the previous commands can be found.
