  1. Change the type of the railings of the existing ramp to Handrail - Pipe.
  2. Select the existing ramp and duplicate the ramp type and call it Solid Base.
  3. Change the shape type property of this new type to be Solid in order to fill in the space under the ramp.
  4. Change the material property of this new type to be Cast-In-Place Concrete gray.
  5. Now create a new ramp type and call it Very Steep. Change the Maximum Slope to be 1:6 instead of 1:12. Make the Shape be Thick.
  6. Now draw a new ramp with the type Very Steep from Level 1 to Level 2 with straight runs and landings that are at least 4'0" long. Note that existing ramps will not change slope with this type, you must create a new instance.
  7. Move the new ramp horizontally so that the top aligns with the Level 2 Floor Slab.
