    • RampMethod1 goes down at the ramp angle and the moves horizontal to the target point
    • RampMethod2 goes horizontal first and then down at the ramp angle to the target point
    • RampMethod3 goes down in a zigzag way
    • Helix goes down spiraling
  • Dressup Start Depth is the distance above the target level where ramping starts
  • UseStartDepth indicates that the ramping does not start above the stock level. If it is not set to true the first ramp can be steeper than expected.
