Base of volume

Hi all,

I have a litte problem.

I have a pile:

The problem is that one side is lower than the other side.  
I created volume for this pile but i have a problem with calculating the groud.
Closest the the truth is when I taking "Align with lowest point" but then I have something that: 

Is it possible for the base to be at an angle? Something like that?

Hi Marian, 

The best option to use for you would be the triangulated base surface. This option is recommended, especially when the terrain around the volume is not flat. The base surface based on the selected boundary vertices, as shown in the figure below.
