Default Problem in changing the direction of movement of flowitems?

I have got a problem in my model... By default the part which moves in Flexsim are from left to right, but in my model the source is situated on the right side (it is a Z shape layout wherein the source is at the right top corner)..
When I run the model, the flowitems are shown as moving from left to right towards i.e., towards the source...
How to overcome this?

Change your objects' RZ properties to 180 so that they are rotated 180 degrees.

I've heard this one a few times so I figured it deserved its own thread.

If you want the object to keep its original orientation, set the RZ in the Properties window to 180 as Phil said, then press the Edit button beside Shape Factors and set the RZ to 180, the X to 1, and the Y to 1.
