Q - question

Highlighting object extents by bounding-boxes.

A - answer The LISP application CADstudio BBox automatically draws either permanent or temporary bounding boxes (rectangles or circles) to selected objects in an AutoCAD drawing. BoundingBoxes can highlight the extent (boundary) of a given entity.

The BBox command creates bounding boxes as new entities in the current layer. You can choose between Rectangles and Circles.

The BBox1 command is an interactive version. It draws red bounding boxes for all objects which are hoovered-over by your mouse cursor. These temporary lines are not part of the drawing and they are erased on any screen redraw (F7/F7, Redraw).

The free application BBox can be downloaded from www.cadstudio.cz/download.
