I've created a moderately complex curved solid in Rhino and have taken it into Revit (2008 version) as a metric mass family.  It allows me to create a wall by mass but it is orientated the wrong way i.e. external material faces inwards.  How do I re-orientate the wall?  Perhaps I'm doing somthing wrong when I select the massing face?

Just to add - I've used an acis sat file for the export/import.

I am having the same problem when i apply a curtain wall to the face of a mass. It would be good to know if there is any hard and fast rule that determines which way the wall will orientate. I have tried re-doing the mass surfaces with mixed results. Sometimes the wall orientates correctly, sometimes not. The mass was created within revit and not imported.
