Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding displacement paths, part of Revit: Construction Modeling Tools.
…Once you have displaced elements it can be very useful…to create leaders that point back to the element's original location.…You can do this very easily with the displace path tool.…And it helps us create some very nice diagrams that make…it very easy to understand what the overall assembly looks like.…So I'm in a view here called Paths and I…have a wall and some windows displaced on the right.…And let me start by just showing you how the Path tool works.…All you have to do is select one of your displacement sets.…And up here on the ribbon, you will see a Path tool.…
Once you're in the Path tool, you can add paths to any displacement set.…So you do that by just simply clicking on…one of the points on the object that is displaced.…And it will create a dotted line back to the original location.…Even though I started with the windows, I can…create paths to any displacement set in this view.…So notice I can pick points on the displaced wall as well and even…though it's in a different displacement set it will still add the paths there.…
