trying to work this out if you have a box , that has 4 corners at vectors -2,5 2,5 -2,5 2,-5 these positions are local to the center of the box/model. if the box/model is rotated , by a number i can get the matrices of the rotation ect , but how do i calculate the 4 corners relitilve to the world?

Your corner points are in local coordinates relative to the box center? Then apply the rotation matrix to the four corner points and add the box's world position to the four points.

The center of your box is at


The local coordinate of one of the corners is


The world coordinate of this corner is


To rotate the corner around the center of the box, apply the rotation matrix to the local coordinates



The new world space coordinate is
