Here you can see an animation of my fluid sim. The inflow is that small black circle.

enter image description here

For some reason, the fluid flows in from the space between the inflow and one edge of the domain...

enter image description here

Here are a couple other views showing the domain and inflow windows.

How might I go about fixing this?

Additional notes:

  • I get "No active UV layer found in the object" when I bake via the render panel (not when I bake via the physics panel). I don't know if this is significant or not.
  • Object scales are all at 1.0x, 1.0y, 1.0z.

  • $\begingroup$ weird. Have you checked if any transform needs to be applied? Can you share the .blend? $\endgroup$ – m.ardito Oct 14 '15 at 11:18

The normals of the inflow object are inverted. Flip or recalculate them.
