Compound Transformations dissection

Hi @DavidRutten,

Could you give me a paper or website or something that explains what you describe in this post?

What is happening behind the scenes?

See here: Compound transformation equivivalent in C# for some way to use it and the difference between Rhino vs GH (which is the order of operations - Rhino multiplies backwards from the order you want, GH multiplies in the order you want.)

And best way to visualize it is to look at something like Autodesk Maya’s transform menu where you clearly see the matrix. Basically every transform changes values in that matrix to make one “overall” transform. So in the case of this screenshot there is one transform that involves moving and rotation. The columns represent X,Y,Z.
