Properties

  • Ramp Feed Rate can either be the current vertical or horizontal feed rate or some other custom value
  • Angle of the ramp against the vertical axis. A smaller value makes the ramp steeper.
  • Method is used to select different modes of ramping:
    • 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.
