Boundingbox Size of Point selection

Hi, I am trying to get the Size of a Pointselection...basically what obj.GetRad() is for Objectsize...but for selected Points.

Is there an easy way?

The easy way is to calculate it. 🙂 It's simple for a given set of points. Just make sure you use a copy of
the starting point, otherwise you'll have two times the same vector and that will lead to wrong results.

minv = c4d.Vector(points[0])
maxv = c4d.Vector(points[0])

I tried this...whats not working here?

def GetSelectionSize(op) :
  
  
    sel = op.GetPointS()
    points = [(i, point)
          for i, point in enumerate(op.GetAllPoints())
          if sel.IsSelected(i)]
  
    if not points:
      return
  
    selsizemin = min(c4d.Vector(point[1]) for point in points)
    selsizemax = max(c4d.Vector(point[1]) for point in points)
    selsize= selsizemax-selsizemin
    return selsize

You have to find the min/max for each **component (x, y, z)  **of all points, not the min/max of all points.

Also, why do you write point[1] ? That'll give you the Y component of the Vector.

I guess you are right😂

This Works now. I guess its more complicated than it could be 😉

def GetSelectionSize(op) :
  
  
    sel = op.GetPointS()

          for i, point in enumerate(op.GetAllPoints())
          if sel.IsSelected(i)]
  
    if not points:
      return
  
    selsizeminX = min(point[1].x for point in points)
    selsizemaxX = max(point[1].x for point in points)
    selsizeminY = min(point[1].y for point in points)

    selsize=boundbox.GetLength()

Just a question, because Im instrested in: Wouldnt it be better to do all in one for-loop?

I tried it out. Im not sure if its the best practice, but the results.
