is there any script / trick for FZ which works as a 'cage' tool? what i need from time to time is a derivative tool which generates a perfect bounding box of an existing shape. mostly to remove bevels from facetted models, but it could be useful also for low res placeholder shapes etc.

 

anyone?

 

cheers

You could try the "Wrap Objects" tool. Good for creating a simple shape to be used as a placeholder but I don't think it'll help with bevels etc.
There was a cage tool in version 6..

If you make it into a component, you can display it as a bounding box from the Display options.

 

Hope this helps.

 

 

Z,

 

Can this be added at the object level via attributes?

 

Thanks,
