    I'll get right to the problem, I am moving a Cube on a platform which is made of small cube using queue to make a procedural infinity moving platform and i am using rb.velocity to move a player (also a cube) over these cubes/platform but the cube sometime start rotating, i want it slide smoothly and not rotate, i applied a physics material on both player and platform cube for zero friction but it didn't work.
