How can I convert a vector in terms of 3 angles and a magnitude to a vector in terms of cartesian x, y, z? I''ve seen that x = magnitude * cos(angX) and z = magnitude * sin(angZ), but am unsure about the Y axis one. Thanks, David

Ah great. Just what I wanted. Thanks,

polar 3d does not work with 3 angles and a magnitude. Spherical uses 2 angles and a radius. not really sure which one you''re looking for.

Yep. I was sorta confused after a night of late coding. That link posted before has fixed my problem. Thanks,
