    Finding A compound angle

    Ben Ball

      Hi All..

       

      I have been scratching my head for some time trying to work out a compound angle.

       

      I have attached a file.

       

      There is a base sphere, where I have created a co-ordinate system and my Base Zero position..

       

      In theory.. I should be able to rotate the top plate in this to Co-ordinate system 2 about the sphere.

      This should be rotated in 2 axis's.. in order to get the top plate flat again..

       

      I can't work out the 2 angles I need.. 1 tip and one rotation..

       

      Any help here is most appreciated..

       

      TIA

       

      Ben
