Egress Path and Minimum Travel Distance with Dynamo

Yesterday I've been playing with Dynamo to calculate the minimum travel distance and the egress path length for each room of a level in Revit, it is still a work in progress and there is much to do in terms of handling exceptions, avoiding obstacles, but the core is there and it hasn't been that difficult to achieve after all.
I can say that having the possibility to choose among several tools to solve this kind of problems is a very good sensation, I can see several applications for that, in the design phase of course but also in the O&M of a facility, especially when there is valuable equipment that has been moved from one room to another.
I'd like to hear some feedbacks on this so feel free to leave a comment.

  1. I think you've some problem :)

  2. Stunning usual...

  3. Super useful also in concept phase while designing (let's say) a hotel: if your maximum egress path exceeds the maximum accepted, your concept is no go.
