What are the possible separating axes between a polytope and a line segment? I think I need to test the polytope face normals and the cross products between the polytope edges and the segment direction. What about testing the segment direction itself? I am not sure about this. Also any other potential axes I am missing? Thanks, -Dirk

For me, I'd think of a segment as a squashed oriented box. Then you have two axes. The segment dir, and the vector perpendicular to the segment dir.
