Dear all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a problem that I need to solve. (I have made posts previously about this as well). Quite simply now I have an object that rotates in 3D space (No translation). I have coordinates of 3 points before and after rotation. Using this data how can I calculate its centre of rotation?

Thank you very much for your input.

Regards

Yasith
