rectangleEdgeTransform MethodStatic

Test if data is one of several forms of a rectangle.

  • If so, return transform with
    • origin at one corner
    • x and y columns extend along two adjacent sides
    • z column is unit normal.
  • The recognized data forms for simple analysis of points are:
    • LineString
    • Loop containing rectangle content
    • Path containing rectangle content
    • Array of Point3d[]
    • IndexedXYZCollection
  • Points are considered a rectangle if
    • Within the first 4 points
      • vectors from 0 to 1 and 0 to 3 are perpendicular and have a non-zero cross product
      • vectors from 0 to 3 and 1 to 2 are the same
    • optionally require a 5th point that closes back to point0
    • If there are other than the basic number of points (4 or 5) the data
