would like to rotate the reference plane of my swept blend. i am able to choose rotate and t he swept blend appears to rotate, but then it just stays in the same place.

any help MUCH appreciated - been at it for about 1/2 hour.

about 7 hours here and there into this with no solution so far. basically, i have a trapezoidal shape (looking from plan view) that I am attempting to sweep blend (see attached image). I am able to "In-Place Mass" this shape which is a ramped curving bridge.  However, I am not able to re-attribute the mass shape as a floor, so it is on the same layer as all my other masses and disappears when massing is turned off. 
 
when i try to use component modeling to create this floor, i use swept blend but the reference planes are locked parallel to the path of the sweep.  
 
I really really appreciate any advice one could give. every procedure in revit 2010 is taking forever at this point. i've given up on revit altogether, but this is the last thing i would like to do to finish this 100+ hour massing dummy model.
I'll be getting out my pens to trace over all the massing images to attempt to explain my proposal to somehow after that, otherwise i might not have hair left Smile

instead of rotating your sweep why not draw a reference plane along where you want it and just base it on that ?

Im guessing you want it parallel with your section ?

that would be the best way to accomplish this

either that or just move your top/base profiles so that the angle it makes is correct
