I'm trying to remodel this basin (http://www.americanstandard-us.com/assets/cad/amstd/DC4DCEE8.rfa) from scratch using Revit's creation tools. I'm using the void blend tool to create the middle of the basin, but I do not know how to manipulate the straight path to make it curved. (no clue how to use edit vertices either)
Can anyone provide some insight please?

Okay, avoid using the Swept Blend option wherever possible. It creates massive file sizes and is extremely temperamental.
If possible you'd be better modelling something like this in Inventor and importing the ADSK file... Sinks are difficult to model with the standard tools (possible, but tricky), easy to do using the Generic Model Points Based template, but you don't have the option to set it as a Plumbing Fixture from memory.
Edit Vertices is to control how the vertices connect. That is, which point at the base connects to which point at the top. You can create twisted forms using this.
I'd being a combination of a void extrusion and a plane void sweep to achieve this, if not, modelling it all as separate solids if that doesn't work...
