BRepBuilderAPI_MakeFace -> BRepBuilderAPI_NotPlanar errror

Hi, I'm trying to build a flat face from a set of points, I know for sure that all of my points lie in the same plane, somehow rotated in space, but for some reason BRepBuilderAPI_MakeFake will always give me an error BRepBuilderAPI_NotPlanar ... I suspect that there are some - float rounding errors, my coordinates are initially in float(32 bits), how to normalize my points,  how to align my points in the flat surfce?

Hi,

Open CASCADE offers a commercial BestFit component, but why not iterate over your points and search three points that define a plane (are not on one line and far away from each other)?
