Hi Johannes,

I think I was finally able to sort things out, I didn't notice the "Custom Tool: Plane" component automatically turns the tool by B=90 degrees

(it's also clearly explained in the component help window, I just missed it)

if I was a good mathematician I would be able to extrapolate ABC values from the rotation matrix... but I'm not

so the best solution I found is to use your Custom Tool: Plane component together with Putterfish's Rotate Euler component

hopefully this might be of help for other non-mathematicians like me:)

given a tool with correct ABC values, but where XYZ axis need to be rearranged while keeping the very same reference system orientation:

this way the ABC values listed in the tooltip of "Custom Tool: Plane" are recalculated by your component, and can be used to re-define the very same tool with rearranged axis (both in KUKAprc and in the KUKA itself )
