Network analyst in a building

My problem is I want to trace routes between various points and floors of a building and display it in 2D maps. In the first map of the route would go from the starting point for elevator / stairs on the second map from the elevator / stairs to the destination. Is there any way of linking points to trace routes Network Analyst automatically and display 2 different maps?
Now, I'm doing manually calculate the midpoint (elevator / stairs) and shows two routes, one for each map. I want to add barriers and the issue becomes more complicated with alternate routes to other plants and hallways of the building.
What do you think?

Thank you very much and sorry my bad English, I hope you understand.

P.S. I´m using API for Javascript

Network Analyst can be used to route within buildings modeled as 3D networks. There is a tutorial dataset that you can use and see how it is set up to model the stairs, elevators, etc:

You can also read a blog that talks about this capability:

Jay thank you very much.

I had previously read the links you've provided me.
My problem is I still do not understand how to use 3D API Networks with javascript and how to show the possible results on 2D maps. Everything I've read in those links talk about 3D.
Am I asking for something impossible with Javascript?

Thanks again.
