How do you calculate the slope of a ramp?
The slope of a ramp is an important factor in determining how easy the ramp is to ascend and descend, and dimensions usually depend on the space available to construct the ramp. You can calculate the slope by using a simple equation: rise/run. The lower the second number, the steeper the slope.
What is maximum incline length Revit?

What is a 4 to 1 slope?
For example, “slopes are expressed as ratios such as 4:1. This means that for every 4 units (feet or metres) of horizontal distance there is a 1 unit (foot or metre) vertical change either up or down.”
