Entry

        • Ramp Length - sets the single segment length for the selected ramp type.

        • Angle of Approach - sets the angle which the ramp move forms with the toolpath segment to which it is connected. This defines the angle of the ramp move to the horizontal.


NOTE:      All of the options work similar to the automatic ramp option, that is if that particular option fails, the other ramp options are attempted. If no ramp strategy is possible in that given area, then a plunge move is applied.
