Hi All Flow 3D users,

I've just created simple rectangular open channel. but the channel bed still
doesn't have slope. I am wandering how to make a slope of the channel bed. Could any body help me how the way to create bed slope? In creating bed slope I think there are two things that I think should be considered first the sub-component, this one can possible to rotate and the second is Mesh which cannot be rotated. Please see attached file the open channel which I've made with zero of bed slope.
Thank you so much for your help

Best Regards,

Roy.

Either make a solid component for the bed and rotate it (and translate it if necessary), or set gravity GX and GZ both, using trigonometry to figure out how much is GZ and how much is GX - this is like rotating the frame of reference.
