How can I get a counter top to attach to a curved wall and carry the same radius as the curved wall?

Use pick walls to draw your sketch or pick lines or just draw your sketch to the same radius?  Maybe i'm misunderstanding what your asking...

what i would do is create a new floor make it the countertop thickness, i usally make mine about 2", then just use floor tool and pick the walls and elevate it like 3ft.

i might suggest a subtlety here - if doing 'casework' in revit, sometimes best to do it as that category, so revit's visibility abilities can be used well.  not as a floor maybe.  we tend to do kitchen cabinetry for instance as in place families, under the casework category.  that way it is easy to tick on or off in any view.  we also find in place families have a lot of power when doing cabinetry, as you end up with one item in the model.

when you say do it in the casework catagory, what exactly am I doing in the casework catagory? are there no  predefined counter tops that have curved edges that you can adjust or not ones that are fixed? If you suggesting that I create my own countertop which is the best way to go about doing so.

  1. From the Modelling menu, choose Create or click Create from the Modelling tab of the Design Bar.

    The Family Category dialog box appears.

  2. Select the appropriate family category. In this case choose "casework"
  3. Choose the family category and click Proceed.
  4. In the Family Name box, type in a family name and click OK. "curved countertop"
  5. When you finish creating the in-place family, click Finish Family to end creation of the new in-place family.

thank you that was very helpful. I have another question. One of the custom counter tops that I created I am able to adjust the edges to make longer or wider, one other that I created I cannot adjust? Is there a setting that I missed?

There was a total redesign of revit's UI in version 2010, so old threads like this cannot be taken literally.
