Boundinig Box
Am I missing a file with the new version? Was the Help file not updated to the new menus? Where is the Bounding Box function? The Help file says "Tools>Create>Bounding Box"

RE:Boundinig Box
Keith & Johann,

What do you use a bounding box for (other than packaging)?  Guess I should know after all these years :)

Thanks!

Mike

RE:Boundinig Box
Mike,
I use it for a few things, like finding the minimum size of a complex model by selecting a  construction plane for measuring, so I get the minimum size requirement. I also use it when I start splitting up a part for a mold design. Put a bounding box around the part, then offset the created box by about one inch or so, now I have the block I need to get water around the part.

RE:Boundinig Box
In my case, primarily for packaging, occasionally for finishing (paint) racks to determine how many parts we can get on a rack.
