look ...I'.m tryng to obtain a free 3d form,something like a hyperbolical surface with 2 curvatures on both directions.till now I haven't been able to obtain more than an extruded form with only one curvature.The project in supposed to look more like a wave or a ribbon and I'm not even sure if this can be done by revit. Any advice would be helpful.

Create a mass via two blends... I've created hyperbolic surfaces in this manner before... You can then use your mass as a framework for curtain systems, walls, roofs, floors...

Quite a lot is possible with Revit roofs. The Roof tool by itself or via In-Place Families assigned to the Roof category. Here's an example of the later using the Solid>Blend option. Tensile roofs like those that Birdair makes are probably the hardest to replicate but you can often get a reasonable decent representation for design purposes. You can also import nurb based objects into Revit to use for such forms.
