Creating a Wall under a Sprial or Curved Stair in RAC 2009

Many have asked the question and there's really never been a great way to deal with it...creating a wall that follows the slope of a spiral or curved stair. Well, with the introduction of the Swept Blend in Revit Arch 2009, it can be done quite easily!

Once the program is officially released, I will post more detailed instructions on how you can create something very similar to what I have below... I really just wanted to give you a taste of what's to come with RAC 2009! Since the release of the product isn't finalized (as far as I know), I don't want to spell out the details just in-case something changes with the feature.

The Finished Product! (Yes, I modified the door to show open for this image :))

Outside of the Tutorials and the courseware that is available (Autodesk Training Courseware, Ascent Courseware) I would check the book stores online for Revit books. I do not know of any personally that look at specifically modeling, but more of awhole on how to use Revit.
