angle between two lines using ransac coefficients

musi00
Hello,

I am trying to find an angle between two lines returns by SACSegmentation.  The method returns 6 coefficients.
I would like to know what those 6 coefficients mean as a line in 3D needs only 4 coefficients.

Also how would I convert the two lines i get to two vectors in order to compute the angle between them using
pcl::getAngle3D?

Mustafa

It is in the documentation somewhere, but these coefficients represent the Cartesian coordinates (x,y,z) of one point, and the direction of the line as a unit vector (i+j+k)
