|Summary||0003407: Allow users to specify orientation of a fiducial through GUI|
There are cases when a user might want to mark a fiducial's position AND orientation: for instance, a doctor planning a needle insertion might need to mark both the insertion point as well as the insertion direction.
Fiducials now have an orientation field, but it's not exposed to change through the GUI. One possible way this could be done would be, when adding a fiducial, to have the orientation information of the fiducial default to be "Hidden". If a checkbox in the Markups module is set to "Visible", then a small coordinate frame centered at the fiducial's position could be displayed, which the user can re-orient with the mouse.
The challenge would be making an intuitive interface for re-orienting the fiducial. We could look at how 3D modeling software like Blender does this for some inspiration.

Did you create a github topic branch for this?
Here's the link to the github topic branch:
The orientation functionality works, but the code is definitely not yet ready to be pushed back into the Slicer trunk. I'll continue working on this.
Okay, reassigned it to you and you can reassign to me when it's ready to be integrated.
There was a request on the Slicer Users list for this functionality so I was hoping to get a progress report from you. What's the barrier to pushing the code back into Slicer?
Unfortunately I haven't made any progress on this since last year, and I doubt I will have time to continue working on this in the near future.
The code in the topic branch seems to work fine, but as I said it was pretty messy to get that prototype working.
Thanks for the update! I'll reassign the bug to myself and see if I can integrate your code.
From JC: sphere widget handle bug fix
That's great! When I last worked with it for this issue, the sphere widget was really wacky. Glad to see that's being addressed.
