[Bf-committers] inconsistent units
Mon, 16 Aug 2004 09:10:52 -0700 (PDT)
size is a relative property, it has next to nothing to
do with the bounding size of the object.
Size indicates the scaling of the object from its
reference size. Which means that if an object has Size
= (3, 3, 3) (3 times as big on all axis) and a vertex
on (1, 1, 1), the real position of the vertex will be
(3, 3, 3).
There's nothing wrong here as long as you know what
