Return Value

Array of 6 doubles containing the 2 diagonal points that bound the part



The values returned are approximate and should not be used for comparison or calculation purposes. Furthermore, the bounding box may vary after rebuilding the model.

The X,Y,Z points returned are the lower- and upper-diagonal corners that bound the part with the box sides parallel to the X, Y and Z axes. The box dimensions returned enclose the part and usually close to the minimum possible size, but this is not guaranteed.
