Hi All,

Arc 1 4 (0.939693 0.34202 0) as in tutorial 2. How do you work out the x, y, z coordinates in the brackets?

Any response would be appreciated.

Hi Robert,

I had a similar problem just short time ago (I'm still working and sweating on the case) and solved it by geometric relations.
a^2 + b^2 = c^2 did it for me.
Though I would be highly grateful if somebody has a better idea...
