# Feature Request

As a user, I think the function `Translation.from_vector(vector)` should be added. Both for the sake of completeness and convenience. Similarly `Reflection.from_plane(plane)`.

## Details

Maybe there is a better way to do this from a user’s perspective:

``````T = Translation(my_vector_with_really_long_name.x, my_vector_with_really_long_name.y, my_vector_with_really_long_name.z)
``````

For example, this function will be consistent with , `Transformation.from_frame_to_frame(frame_from, frame_to`
