Bode diagram to Nichols curve

I want to tune a machine we are experimenting on using the Nychols-curve. In the machine-software it's possible to measure some Bode-plots of the machine itself. With these results (magnitude and phase at different frequencies) i want to plot a Nichols-curve. I know it's possible with the SISOTOOL to make a Nychols-curve using a systemmodel, but i want a direct link between the bode and nichols curve using a tool like sisotool.
Any help? Simon

Since you have the mag and phase data for bode plot is open loop You can just plot a Nichols plot yourself by transforming the coordinates for a Nichols by using the formula
basically you just plot: plot(PHASE, db(ComplexData./(1+ComplexData)));ngrid;
where ComplexData is complex open loop response in cartesian form
PHASE is in degrees = 180*angle(ComplexData)/pi

You can create an FRD (frequency response data object) using the mag and phase information
>> m = [1;2;3]; % mag in abs
>> ph = [10;15;30]; % phase in deg
>> w = [10;20;30]; % frequency rad/sec
>> sys = frd(m.*exp(1i*pi/180*ph),w);
Then use the plotting commands to view it. Note FRD objects can be imported into SISOTool as well.
