About Inlets & Outlets
Is it possible define a inclined plane as an inlet or outlet? If yes, how?

It is possible to do.

Using the VR Editor, insert the inlet / outlet as normal, then rotate the object to the desired angle.

Don't forget to adjust the x/y/z comments of the the fluid entering/leaving the domain.

I have also found that increasing the number of cells in the region near the inlet / outlet improves the results dramatically.

Hope this helps,

Re: About Inlets & Outlets
Of a matter of fact this answer occured and to me a few days after I posted the message...and by moving the inlet I can put it on the desired position (in fact my original quest was how can I define as an inlet, an already inclined plane- a side of an oblect).

Thanks a lot!
