Mantaflow inflow and effector collision not working

I’ve created a scene with a fluid domain, collision effector and liquid inflow.
The problem is that baking liquid doesn’t result in blue dots shown. Or if I somehow managed to bake something the baked liquid doesn’t account for the effector collision.

Blender versions: 2.82, 2.83a (both from official download pages)


  1. Download .blend file from
  2. Open the .blend file
  3. Click Domain object > Open Physics tab > Click Bake Data under Settings section

Bake successful, blue dots are visible when navigating the timebar. Simulation accounts for effector collision.
