Overall Dimensions

Is there a way to see the overall x, y, and z dimensions of an object that is in rhino. In other words the height, width, and depth. Many programs are doing this now. :grinning:

Hello- BoundingBox will give this information - you can set it for output=None if you just want the numbers.
@intuitionusa - here’s a py that might help -

BBDims.py (1.4 KB)

To use the Python script use RunPythonScript, or a macro:

_-RunPythonScript "Full path to py file inside double-quotes"


thanks. I like bounding box. Where is the icon tool?

It’s in the Box toolbar (Solid Creation). One might think it would also be in the Analysis toolbar, but it isn’t.

And two from me… (the second one only puts up a temporary display until Esc is pressed).

BoundingBoxWithSize.py (3.5 KB)
BoundingBoxWithSizeOnScreen.py (4.8 KB)


I would think the BoxEdit toolbar would be what he’s looking for, no?

Yep, that too, that is a good one to use.


I know there are scripts available but it would be nice to have a min. bounding box as a native tool too.
