    curved work planes not possible afaik...use 3D 'pick lines' around the window perimeter to select your path, then add your profile.
    to add block work like in your previous posts you could array single blocks around the same radii as the hosting wall &/or create some temporary geometry to create a suitably angled workplane for the vertical placements. :wine:

    edit, maybe i'm getting a bit carried away :wine: but after a bit of mucking around, wall and faced based blocks work well.

        what outcome are you trying to achieve? single swept profile (see pics) or something else?

            ok, simplest way is an in-place sweep around opening perimeter edge by using 'pick lines' method as I described above (make sure you TAB to select curved wall opening), then add or draw your profile ( to draw, right click on viewcube>orient to plane...) there is no need to set working plane. also apply your material before finishing sweep.

              In general, as elton said, just that on a curved surface if you also want to cut from the surface(like for a exterior stone) revit seems to heve some problems if you have a sweep path with more than one line, so make one sweep per segment like in this movie. On flat surfaces is working with all segments in one sweep.

              at least that`s how it works here.

              p.s. you can also make wall based family with sweeps inside it that have wall radius,opening arc legth(aka window width), and opening height as parameters.

                  if the profiles are the same i would model it as a single sweep, if the profiles are different sizes you could use 45° void cuts at each end of each sweep.

                    If the profiles are the same, and all offset values are the same, and the material is the same, they should mitter automatically. If one is different, go with Elton's advice...
