i'm currently working on a project where by the front framing members will be Steel I-Section curved beams. i do know it is possible to create my own families, therefore i would be able to create curved beams, but i am unsure as to how i would go about this (ref. planes etc. for when i introduce beams into my drawing). i am new to Revit and would appreciate if anyone could help me.

you sould start by using structural framing template for beams and braces. once in the template choose the solid 3d option and pick sweep. then makle your profile of the beam then a path for it to follow inorder to get your desired curve pick finish. before you do all that you shoukl set your work plane possibly put a pararmeter on ti so it can be adjusted once inserted into your project i would suggest instance parameter since you may have more than one beam at diferent levels. if you choose type they all will be at the same level in every location they are inserted. instance parameters give you a little more flexibility, but there are times when things are always the same so you would then use type parameters. also if you have not already gone through some family creation tutorials i would suggest that to you also.
