    • Ramp Feed Rate : Can either be the current vertical or horizontal feed rate or some other custom value
    • Angle : Angle of the ramp against the vertical axis. A smaller value makes the ramp steeper.
    • Method : 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 : The distance above the target level where ramping starts
    • Use Start Depth : 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.
