    Welcome to the forums.
    An image would help but are you getting an error about self intersecting geometry? Are the curves too tight for the profile to resolve?

    Use a sweep that has a profile without any (or too many) curves. Its helpful to avoid anything less than 1/32" (0.45mm) as Revit will become confused by that dimension type.
    Screenshots are helpful if you have any to post that help explain what you are doing.
