Ramp between two levels - Wheelchair and loading dock ramp

Your application is amazing!

I have a question about creating a wheelchair and a loading dock ramp between two levels. How can this be done or can it be done?

- I want to have the ramp to start at the street level (level 0) and then slope down to the loading dock (lower level 1).

- I also have a wheelchair ramp that needs to rise (or lower) incremently, where the ramp split the elevation in half. The two separate ramps use a platform as the bridge between the ramps.

i.e. Ground floor ramp up to platform (between floors) up to Mezzanine floor

I hope I explained my issues properly.

Thanks for your help and suggestions.

Re: Ramp between two levels - Wheelchair and loading dock ramp

Hello,

the easy way is to use a sloping wall, adapted to your size requirements. you place that wall onto the lower level of your design, reaching the upper one with its higher end.

i've done this in this example:


note the big dark ramps in the sublevel of the building, next to the garage. These are the "walls".
Very easy to adapt to your needs i believe.
