create a camber in a straight section

Hi,

 

I have a 6000mm long beam that now requires a 30mm camber to be introduced at the center. The radius would be 150015mm

 

Rather than re - creating the part to show this camber I think I can use the Flex command to create this extra camber on the straight girder.

 

However when I try, I can only get it to create a sweep in the beam i.e. it goes left or right rather than up.

 

How do I change the axis line so it goes correct way.

 

If someone could post video showing the steps to archive this I would be very grateful, any size section will do as an example

 

See below what i would like to do is the bottom drawing.
