I set up a case for particle accumulation on a flat plate using DPM.
It's a simple case where particles from a height are free-falling in the domain onto the opposite end.
I used wall-film BC to achieve this.
The wall-film BC only allows for particle accumulation up to 5 microns.
Is there a way to allow me to see accumulation without a limit of accumulation height on ANSYS Fluent?
Can I use a UDF to achieve my objective?
What other alternatives do I have?

The film can be any depth, but you'll not see a physical thickness due to how it works. Additionally, a film flows, which is differet to particle stacking. Remember DPM is a point mass and doesn't occupy any volume: it's covered in the documentation.
For particles I'd be looking at Ansys Rocky, it'll be faster too if you're not bothered about the carrier fluid.
