    travel distance line

    I am looking for a solution that can create a travel distance lenght that you can tag and gave a distance. Current I use spline for detail line and type in distance. I have look at other option create model family line but that only gave 2 point and gave distance from 2 point doesn't gave total length many segments line. I want to to do like spline and tag and gave total distance. Please share if you have better option doing travel distance.

    Thanks,

    I hear people use railings for that. Never did travel distance lines in Revit before, but that will work (you can tag the length of the railing).
    Use filters to show or hide them in the views you want.

    I agree with Robin, railings are the way to go.

    You can make a multi-point adaptive competent but the workflow sucks and you still need to filter them out of views.

    A railing... I should have asked you guys how to make one of these lines a few months ago. I made a line based family that added arrows the longer it got and also showed the length on the plan. It looked cool, worked bad and nobody likes it. It's always too busy and cluttered.

    My last office had a need for travel lines that showed not distance, but aggregate occupancy to show how we assumed people would exit the space. I didn't find it a helpful tool but "that's the way they'd always done things." In that case, a line-based family, with nested annotations, worked well.

    Thanks guys, line based family doesn't gave total length. I will try railing. Also, I like to have more like spline instead straight line that gave me better control of the length.

    And of course after I posted this about travel lines I had to use them as well and I must say it works well !
