Question on setting ramp height/rise angle

Recommended Posts

When I create a ramp, I am unable to see how to set the top height or rise angle.

 

The dialog speaks of base and top heights, but gives no box to enter a parameter.  (See image)

 

Any suggestions as to what I am missing here on how to be able to set the ramp slope?

 

Tnx!

Seems that info is fixed in Architectural. 

 

Pro allows entry of these parameters.

 

Do you need railings?

Yep, that's kinda what I expected. Need a $295 upgrade Arch->Pro. 

 

Railings were no problem, just need to be able to set the ramp slope to complete the model.

I would experiment with placing a stair to get the railings -- maybe 3 really wide treads, then cover with a wedge shape from the library, or use a Custom Backsplash if available in Architectural -- draw in elevation, shape like a wedge and make as thick as needed.

 

You can set the stair so it's partly below the terrain.
