Default Rotation on conveyor

Hey guys,

I'm trying to rotate a flowitem as soon as it enters a conveyor so the long side is orientated in a rectangular way to the conveyor.
But how do I rotate it back to it's original orientation as soon as it leaves the conveyor?

I found this post saying I should use the OnExit trigger with the following command: setrot(item,0,0,0) - but it doesn't work for me.

I attached a model that shows my problem, the Flowitems should enter the second queue like the first one.

Thank you in advance
Jens

Jens,

you (I guess accidently) put an entry trigger on the second Queue setting the z rotation to 90 again. Just delete that and everything should work fine for you.

Best wishes
