Ramp by Depth

Hello, I just notcied that with NX11 you guys made a wonderful little improvement by adding on a Ramp by Depth feature the the Floor_Wall operations. I was wondering if there was a plan to add this functionality to the ramp on shape dialogs? 

 

As an example, if i was in the cavity mill operation and want to ramp on the shape, instead of entering a ramp angle, I could instead enter a ramp depth. Is there any plans on adding ramp on shape functionality like this in the future?

 

I found with previous softwares I have used, that ramp mill based on depth and not angle to be more reliable and much easier to track. So is the part was changed, I knew that my depth would remain constant and that I would not overload the tool anywhere. 

 

In my opinion, if you guys aren't planning on adding this functionality, you definitly should be. 

 

Thanks

If you create an enhancement request, I would definitely support this ER Smiley Wink

I created it. Is there anything you need to see it?

The ER number would be useful ;-)

That way we can file a "Me too" ER based on yours.

Never made a ER before so hopefully I did it right.

So we will have to wait till it is a real ER, currently it is only an incident report.

Would you mind notifying us when the ER is open?
