I’m trying to figure out how to create a skew or shear transformation since there is not a specific method for doing this within the API.
I’ve actually never encountered this problem before so it will be a topological learning experience.
Does anyone have any examples they might be willing to share?
My intent is to have a specific group (solid) and specify a point on this solid which is the zero point then every other point will be sheared parallel to the Z axis relative to this point. The shearing will only be one dimensional with four possibilities with the directional control: (X, -X, Y or -Y).
I suppose I could write an algorithm that examines each vertex of the group and then translates it to its new Z position, but it would be better if I can simply construct the appropriate transformation and method and approach the problem from that angle.
