# Python script to align object to edge or two vertex coordinates

I want to align an object to an edge via Python.
I have an edge in the 3D space, the edge has a rotation, euler or quaternion, like a 3d object, but this edge is part of an object. I want to copy the rotation of the edge to a external object (like a cylinder).

This seams like what I want, but the result doesn't work. Align Object to Vector using python

• I've found the solution. To align to edge direction, you can use the script in this link: blender.stackexchange.com/questions/19533/… But for the vector you must use "Vector=Vector2-Vector1" where the Vector1 e Vector2 are the coordinates in vector of the vertes of the edge. – Alfonso Annarumma Apr 15 '15 at 22:16

But for the vector you must use Vector = Vector2 - Vector1 where the Vector1 e Vector2 are the coordinates in vector of the verts of the edge.
