I am trying to cut the bottom of this sphere off to the ground level. The axis of the sphere is to be rotated approx. 30 degrees to the right(in the South Elevation) then it will be turned into a curtain wall. The curtain wall part is easy, I just can't get the bottom of the sphere cut off. Thanks fo ryour help.

Sounds like a job for massing... I just don't understand how you can rotate the axis of a sphere...? A sphere appears the same no matter where its rotated?? Create a soild form revolve, then use a void extrusion to cut the bottom off at the ground level. Then use curtain wall by face. HTH.

I tried using the void extrusion, but it would not let me do it in the elevation view, so I tried to do it in a floor plan view and it would not cut it off. I was able to apply a curtain grid system to the sphere, and then rotate it.....

You need to set a reference plane first before going to the elevation in order to give revit a starting plane for your extrusion. Draw a reference plane in plan, the set work plane, pick the reference plane and you'll be prompted to go to an elevation. Now sketch it out...

This is the message I get when I do that: This Mass has no solid geometry for its Void Forms to cut. They must be deleted, or solid geometry added and cut.

It wouldn't work cause your sphere was an external family, you cannot cut external families within a project. I recreated your sphere inside the inplace family and then cut it... Here it is.
