Selected objects into list

Hi all,

Lately I’ve been learning to script a bit in python and I’ve been trying to create a script that loops through the selected objects (polysurfaces) and puts a minimum boundingbox around each and then selecting all of those at once it’s done.

So far I’ve found a script that creates a minimum bounding box around an object and that works great, but I’m having troubles trying to adapt it to multiple objects.

This is where I’m at right now. (532 Bytes)

I’m guessing trying to put objects into a list isn’t going to work? Is there any other way to remember the objects in order to loop through them or am I approaching this the wrong way?

Hi @felipehhs,

Rhino does not have a MinBoundingbox command. Do you know what plug-in or script provides this?

Hi @dale,

Yes, I’ve found an old script here that calculates the minimum size bounding box and creates this. It worked perfectly before I tried to put it into a list so I didn’t think that’s where the problem was.

Currently when I try to run this script it doesn’t show anything, no errors either which is why I’m not sure how to fix it.

Edit: I’m an idiot and noticed I didn’t even run the function. That is fixed so I’m getting errors again. I still have my original questions about putting objects into lists though. I found some posts about GUID, is that where I should be looking?
I’ll reupload the script in the original post just in case.

Edit 2: Just now I found this info about rhino objects in python, actually written by you… I feel quite silly for posting this thread now.
