Hi, I want to calculate the coordinates of an object after a particular translation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the 3D coordinates at the origin: x0,y0,z0

and i have the 3x3 rotation matrix: (r11, r12, r13; r21, r22, r23; r31, r32, r33)

If I want to move 3 unitsforward, in the direction i am facingand two unitsdirectly downwards with the z plane, how would I do this using my starting coords and the rotation matrix?

If it matters, the reason why I want to do this is that I have a magnetic tracker (minibird) and I have the sensor mounted on an object - I want to be able to calculate the coordinates of the edges of the object.

I know this is a trivial question, but I am not having much luck with my limited linear algebra knowledge...

Many thanks for any help.
