Fit plane to 3-D point cloud

fits a plane to a point cloud that has a maximum allowable distance from an
inlier point to the plane. The function returns a geometrical model that
describes the plane.`model`

= pcfitplane(`ptCloudIn`

,`maxDistance`

)

This function uses the M-estimator SAmple Consensus (MSAC) algorithm to find the plane. The MSAC algorithm is a variant of the RANdom SAmple Consensus (RANSAC) algorithm.
