I have scaled and non-scaled representation of model so that I don’t destroy verticis information if model will be scaled to plane, for example. Now I trying implement scaling on model elements (face, edge), I set up axis of scale tool on dislplay (scaled) model, but I stucked with produce inverse transformed axis for correct scaling in non-scaled model version. What I mean:
Here not rotated not scaled cube.
Then I rotate and scale by global X axis (1, 0, 0), for rotated model this will be X Y axis. Faded axis is original axis, more bright is axis that scale tool produce and with which user interact.
This is how scale tool axis looks after just straight full inverse transform, under “straight” I meen just muliplying on inverted matrixs in right order. That actualy expected result because they orthognal in scaled space, but not correct result for perform correct scaling.
I have been trying to find an answer for several weeks now, trying many combinations of transformation order, after I realize that I am just starting to randomly place the matrix I was looking at options maybe I could somehow construct or line up vector of axis but not succesefull.
Here I want emphasize that inverted axis not necessary should be line up with origin axis (1, 0, 0) (0, 1, 0) (0, 0, 1), they can point in any direction, case that I take above just for simplicity. I think that my knowlend in linear algebra just not enough and it’s actually possible tusk even if it’s not one line matrix multiplication in some tricky order. Or maybe not:).
