Summary0003962: Mesh section with plane uses wrong rotation when mesh is previously rotated
DescriptionMesh sections are done with non-rotated data, although the data appears rotated on the screen. See linked forum post for a screenshot.
Steps To Reproducesteps to reproduce:
imported a mesh from mesh design workbench, rotate it around z by 180 degrees (menu: edit, placement, typed in 180)
go to part workbench, create a plane.
switch back to mesh workbench. use from the menu: meshes, cutting, create section from mesh and plane.

expected result: section lies on the plane and goes through the mesh.
actual result: section lies outside the mesh (rotated around z). it seems to me it uses the original position of the mesh instead of the rotated mesh (tried it with different rotation angles to verify that)
