Not sure if ramping is the correct term....I need a gradual incline/decline or ramp between two areas that are pocketed. These pocketed areas are right next to each other. Is this possible with VCarve Pro?

Have you tried using the Fluting toolpath?

Thank you for the Fluting suggestion..it seems to be working. I am ramping a skinny oval shape..so what I am having to do is draw lines inside the oval for the fluting toolpaths. Is there an easier way to acheive this without having to draw so many lines?

what's so hard about drawing the lines? make 1 vector> use array tool to create the amount needed

Sure, I see your point about using the array function to copy the lines, but I must be missing something. If you are filling an oval shape with an array of copied lines, won't you have a lot of trimming to do on the lines that overhang the oval form? i.e. not all the lines will be the sam length in an oval.
