Using Z axis of mate connector error once transformed
Hello, I am working on a feature that imports a part with a mate connector. I am then rotating that part using the mate connectors Z axis. I also have a boolean which if true, it will rotate about the mate connectors X axis first. The error occurs when I then want to rotate about the mate connectors Z axis. I would think the mate connectors local Z axis would now be perpendicular to the global Z axis. But it is parallel i.e. the part has rotated, but the mate connector hasn't. What is peculiar is it looks like it has in the part studio, but debugging reveals it is (0,0,-1), not (0,1,0). Why is this?
