Revit Architecture 2011 can create 'Structural Floors' and 'Floors'.

Whats the difference?? They seem to create the same object which uses the same family.

Up to now, I've only ever used 'Floor's in my models - should I have been using Structural floors??

 

Cheers.

Structural floors carry structural information that will work in structural programs.  If you are not doing that, then it will make no real difference which floor you use for just visual representation.

I could be wrong, but I also thought a structural floor represented the corregated decking better in section than the non-structural floor.  Granted it has been 2 versions since I have looked into this, so I could be mistaken.

yes, we were give the same capability as Revit Structure when it comes to showing decking in the slabs now.

You can alter the 2d cut results of joining the floor and the beam with the 'cut profile' tool.
How it cuts may depend on the floor layers and associated function. 
Floors 'are' structural but it's a just matter of whether it falls within the responsibility of the architect or the engineer, right?

Thanks guys, so in Italy we have a floor made out of two layers:
 
Layer 1  -    5 cm concrete top                       - "structural" - material - concrete
Layer 2  -  16 cm terracotta bricks bottom    - "not structural" - material terracotta
 
The BEAM that passes through it is poured together with layer 1 - it makes "one piece"
with it. So, it needs to have its top aligned with the top of layer 1, melt its material (concrete)
with it, and  Cut layer 2. If it was a wall, it would happen by making the floor as non structural,
but since it doesn't seem possibile...
 
what else can you suggest?
I am looking for automatic feature, since otherwide i have to cut profile of so many floors and beams!
 
thanks in advance,
 
Stefano
