On Friday, Autodesk released the People Flow Toolkit, an add-in that helps you automate path of travel analysis with tools for social distancing.
“The People Flow Toolkit extends Revit’s Path of Travel toolset to help you understand how people will move through your design. The People Flow Toolkit is available as an add-on with Revit versions starting at 2020.2. With the toolkit, building designers can automate, visualize, and analyze the routes within a model to understand the impacts of physical distancing within the context of a design project.
Greater functionality around path of travel analysis has been in focus for Revit development, with first release of the Path of Travel tool in Revit 2020. The intent is to provide Revit users and Revit developers with smarter, faster ways to design and automate wayfinding and egress and ingress calculations, with access to tools in Revit and through the Revit API. In Revit 2020.2, waypoints were introduced, allowing a designer to adapt, manipulate, and recalculate paths for multi-point paths of travel, improving the flexibility of the tool.
With the People Flow Toolkit, we’re expanding functionality to address the challenges of designing for physical distancing due to COVID-19. The plug-in includes a new tool for finding multiple paths of travel between points, a tool for defining one-way traffic flow, a spatial grid tool for quickly understanding visually the distances within a room, and finally, a tool for rapidly placing people acting as obstacles in your design. “
