Which do you prefer using and why (or in what circumstances)?
Why are there 2 tools that do (apparently) the same thing?
Main differences I've found so far:
Floor Family lets me create and add voids for depressed slab areas. (<- Why
Floor Family allows me to 'grip edit' the edges without having to go into
full-blown editing mode. (<- WHY can't you do this with slabs? This is
*so* much easier and more intuitive.)
I'm just trying to understand the benefits (if any) of using slabs for doing
slabs on grade.
Any thoughts on the matter would be much appreciated.
I guess it all depends what you are using the model for? We have contractors that do their material take-offs and run clash detection plus we use our models for coordination with the architects. I always use structural elements when modeling to prevent any confusion especially for materials
