How We Can Calculate the Shortest Travel Distance Between Two Points in Revit 2020?

In Revit 2019, calculating the path of travel for the code requirement was not really good. There was no way to automatically calculate the length of the chain lines of this path. The new Path of travel tool introduced in Revit 2020 helps you to select the start and endpoint and Revit will automatically calculate the shortest path between the selected points.

It will avoid walls and find the doors. You can also assign obstacles in your project. Path of travel tool will avoid these obstacles and will try to find an alternate route. Revit also ignores all hidden and demolished elements.

Below are some key points of the Path of Travel tool:

  1.  You can also tag the “Path of travel lines”.

    Figure 1 Tag assigned to Path of Travel Lines

  2. By default, the path of travel will avoid an object placed in your project.

    Figure 2 Path of Travel lines avoids obstacles.

  3. You can also Schedule the Path of Travel. In the example below, I have created a schedule for a plan. You can set the mark for each Path of Travel and provide information on the start and endpoint of this path. Speed can also be set for the path and it will calculate the time taken to cover the distance of the path.
