I went ahead and did the math. You can check it in this PDF file [^].
You still have some (or a lot of) work to do because you have to solve a system of non-linear equations.

The basic flow is the same as outlined in my previous message:
- Find the intersection between the circle (mastering part) and the measuring line.
- Using also the formula for the distance between 2 points you reduce it to an equation with 5 parameters: x,y coordinates of the sensor, slope of measuring line, radius of mastering part and distance measured by the sensor.
- Each of the mastering parts gives you a new equation and you solve the system of 3 equations for the 3 unknowns: x,y coordinates and slope.

I've tested the formulas with a CAD drawing and they work nicely.

Enjoy!
