Has anyone found a way to update/recalculate the whole feature plane including rotations in X,Y&Z?  Do you know the math on how the original feature plane is calculated based off of the three points?

Currently I am using feature planes for all of my positions inside of our CNC machines for picking and placing parts in and out of hydraulic vises.  This has been working well but now we are moving the robots around more frequently from one machine to another.  So now I need a more efficient way to reset the three positions in my feature plane.  The big issue I have is most of my programs have their own installation program.  This means that I have to teach every recipes feature plane when I move the robot around, usually 3 or 4 programs.

    There is no built in way to do this currently. I’ve been working through the math myself but do not have it quite complete. I’ll see if I can wrap it up in the next couple weeks and post. 

    If someone else has it that’d be great. Please post it.
