I am trying to visualize a best fit plane for a set of points which is defined by the normals and the centroid.

I have to find the boundary vertices of the plane given the extent of the plane. Is there any easy algorithm which can help in doing so?

Find the convex hull and do whatever regression, e.g. linear regression you like.
