how to get the size of a mesh?


Recommended Posts

Thank you very much Temechon I followed your Babylon example It's more closer to the real model with BoundingInfo but I don't know how to use scaleInPlace, I put: mymesh.scaleInPlace(2);

But doesn't work, what am I doing wrong?

Sorry if its too basic, I'm a Babylon noob.

I saw that the units used to show position are different, what kind of unit is used for position and what units for boundingInfo

Once more, thank you

Sorry, I guess I was too fast as answering (very common these days, I have to calm down:) )


This gives you the 'extends' size of your mesh: the number of units between the center of the mesh and the side of the mesh (along x, y and z axis):

var size = sphere.getBoundingInfo().boundingBox.extendSize;

For the sphere in my example, 'size' will then correspond to its radius.

For a box of scaling (1,1,1), this piece of code will returns (0.5,0.5,0.5).


If you want to have the diameter, you just have to scale this radius by 2, like this:

var diameter = size.scale(2);

Is it clearer now?


To anser to your second question, all units in Babylon are the same: position, boundingInfo, scaling...
