What's New

This is the third beta release for Pathfinder 2013.

This version includes bug fixes, improves performance, and includes a visualization improvement that prevents occupants from appearing to slide around corners.

Please visit the forum to share your experience with this release or send an email to, even if you found no problems.

Changes since Pathfinder 2013.1.0827:

  • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused invalid extracted floor geometry.
  • Fixed a performance problem related to door-to-door wayfinding. Performance should now be similar to Pathfinder 2012 on most models.
  • Occupants will no longer appear to slide sideways as they walk around corners in the 3D results.
  • The Annotate Object Paths preference will no longer include "Floors->" at the beginning of each room and door name in the summary file.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause occupants to become stuck in SFPE mode.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the Add a Rectangular Group of Occupants tool to include gaps in the pattern when adding uniform groups of occupants.
  • Pathfinder will no longer crash when using the Copy/Move tool with geometry groups.
  • Improved selection when showing both the imported geometry and the navigation mesh. Selection now prioritizes the navigation mesh.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Pathfinder to crash when attempting to process a tool action while executing a long-running task.
  • Added more descriptive error messages when a PTH file fails to open.
