    The subject says it all.
    Is there a better method, or does the polygon selection's center need to be calculated by getting the object's polygon and point arrays, indexing into the polygon array from the SelectionTag's GetRange(), and then indexing into the point array from each polygon before doing the actual calculation math?
    Thanks,
    Robert

    I think you have to do it the way you described.
    There is a 'getHelperAxis()' method in the baseObject class, but (from memory) that just tells you where the effective axis is for multiple-object selection, I don't think it works for point/edge/poly selections.

    Yes, that's the way. Since array access is O(1) I don't think it will affect the performance very much.

    Okay.  Not worried about performance as much as obsfucation.  Get's a little messy. :)
    Thanks,
