Default Tilted Channel in OpenFOAM

Dear All,
I am trying to run a simulation of a titled plane channel at 45 degrees. I am wondering, what would be the easiest way to create titled geometry in openfoam? I tried to build a vertical channel using blockMesh and then use TransformPoints -rollPitchYaw (0 0 45), but it does not seem that this would rotate the coordinate axes too (probably causing problems for the velocity field).
I would appreciate your assistance. Thanks

I don't what do you mean by rotating the coordinate axes. I've just tried your approach on the pitzDaily tutorial (applying transformPoints '(45 0 0)' )and it works just as expected, the global coordinates are fixed and now the inlet velocity has a 45 with the surface normal. I've tried this on OF7, don't know if your version handles it differently.





Maybe you should check the error message you're getting or how you defined the boundary condition and gravity on the case.
