TransformPoint(position: Vector3): Vector3;
Vector3 TransformPoint(Vector3 position);
def TransformPoint(position as Vector3) as Vector3

Description

Transforms position from local space to world space.

Note that the returned position is affected by scale. Use Transform.TransformDirection if you are dealing with directions.

	// You need to assign an object to this variable in the inspector
	var someObject : GameObject;
	// Instantiate an object to the right of the current object
	var thePosition = transform.TransformPoint(Vector3.right * 2);
	Instantiate(someObject, thePosition, someObject.transform.rotation);
using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

TransformPoint(x: float, y: float, z: float): Vector3;

Description

Transforms the position x, y, z from local space to world space.

Note that the returned position is affected by scale. Use Transform.TransformDirection if you are dealing with directions.
