I will be needing to detail this complex swept blend. See attached images. Basically, it is a tree feature in an interior space. Each arm is a different length, depth and arc. The difference between them should be the same, minus the length. I am looking for a technique similar to the Rhino or Inventor unfold command. I know Revit does not have this ability, sadly. I am looking at figuring out the standard deviation in depth and arc location per segment and using a note to cover it. I could do this in sections of 4 or 8 and then label / dimension the legs on plan.

Another option may be to draw a standard detail and then dimension it per each instance on a sheet. I might beable to get a few per sheet. (output A3 size)Does anyone have any other tricks to get this detailed to be built?

I think doing them as individual sections is your only option. There is no way to "unfold" them.  Only other thing I can think of is to tag each one individually and have a schedule or even a legend for the family.
