See this post for an example which unpacks to a conveyor.

You can use the ChangeVisual activities in a Process Flow to change the shape to a cylinder.

Attached is a model which also changes the tote to a cylinder and resizes it. The item is then turned 90 degrees to have the conveyor acknowledge the change in size.

Station as Seperator_changeShape.fsm
