How to create a reference plane using more than 3 points (plane of best-fit)

Hello,

 

I am already familiar with creating reference planes using 3 distinct points; however, I was hoping somehow Solidworks has the ability to create a reference plane based off of more than 3 points.  Essentially, I want to create a plane of best-fit through as many points as possible to ensure an accurate reference plane.  If absolutely necessary, I can calculate the equation for the plane of best-fit outside of Solidworks; however, I would still need a way to define a plane via an equation.

 

I look forward to your response.

 

Thank you,

Daniel
