I have been playing around with this one for quite a while and the problem seems to be the way I am calculating  a local axis when I select a quad on  a mesh as the transform seems to work okay if the quad is symmetric but in a scenario where the quad tapers the transform appears to be slightly out. If say, the top line segment is shorter than the bottom segment and the left and right line segments taper out from top to bottom.


What I think it might be is that because of the taper the line segments are not perpendicular and that is where the problem might be as I am calculating the axis with the line segments and crossing them with the normal of the mid point.


Any ideas ?
