Ramping defaults for Aluminum?

I see ramping is defaulted to 20 in Carbide Create Pro, I see some videos from Carbide where they lower that to 5. Any community thoughts on what is good for ramping for Aluminum? Also, is it worthwhile for wood?


For 1/4" cutters and up, I use 3° for aluminum. Shallower for smaller cutters. 5° for wood.
For wood, yes it does have it’s place. Anywhere a plunge will result in burning the wood. I use ramps on my surfacing paths.
