skRectangle error when part's rotated

Lee_HeskethLee_Hesketh Member, Developers Posts: 148 ✭✭✭
Hi there. I have a script that generates mortice and tenon joinery however I have some problems. It works fine if the parts face that the tenon protrudes from is aligned with the x axis. The problem is when it aligns with the y axis.

How I have got it to work so far is the user selects two adjacent faces and then the adjacent face to those two is found using queries. then the vertex of one of the corners is found which is used as the first corner of an skRectangle() function. The other corner is vector(-width, -height). Where width and height are variables chosen by the user.

When it aligns with the y axis, the width and height become swapped and I don't know how to deduce which way the face is aligned. Here is the document. Could anyone have a look and see where I am going wrong? It's feature studio 2.
