    Cool. My office recently did travel distance and it was a lot of manual work to make it work.

    I use railings for that. The new feature is nice, but you have little control over what it actually does.
    As far as I can see it just takes the shortest route and you have to make sure you don't have nested generic models in your doors or they won't work.

    You cant choose the path: first test I did with the advanced architectural project sample, it went through the sprinkler and electrical room!

    I don't recall from earlier testing, but does it make any difference if those rooms are not "Occupiable" in the room properties.

    Edit: nevermind...that's a Space property anyway...

    Space and room properties are not going to have any impact on the way this tool generates a path. The tool "sees" obstacles at the category level. It does not "see" down to the properties level of things (for now).

    Maybe you could intentionally put nested generic families in doors you don't want to path thru. It's not broken it's a feature.

    This is not totally true. I suspect it is a case by case basis. Probably related to the specific family setup and geometry conditions. I just tried nesting a huge "disk" as a generic model on to the face of a door and the Path of Travel makes it through just fine.

    Even if I leave the visibility of the disk in plan on, it makes it through.

    I wonder if this will impact opening family that isn't a door object.
