Ok, I think you are right. I can only treat one set of three points as my start orientation and then compute the orientation towards a second set of three points.

Thank you. I will have a look at this. Seems much more complicated than I had hoped the solution would be.

What is also known as attitude. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orientation_(geometry) The rotation required from the initial coordinate system to end up where it is oriented. Usually represented by a rotation matrix R ( ∈ SO3) or or quaternion q (∈ H)
