This package provides the bounding boxes for curves and surfaces from BRepAdaptor. Functions to add a topological shape to a bounding box.
◆ Add()
Adds the shape S to the bounding box B. More precisely are successively added to B:
 each face of S; the triangulation of the face is used if it exists,
 then each edge of S which does not belong to a face, the polygon of the edge is used if it exists
 and last each vertex of S which does not belong to an edge. After each elementary operation, the bounding box B is enlarged by the tolerance value of the relative subshape. When working with the triangulation of a face this value of enlargement is the sum of the triangulation deflection and the face tolerance. When working with the polygon of an edge this value of enlargement is the sum of the polygon deflection and the edge tolerance. Warning
 This algorithm is time consuming if triangulation has not been inserted inside the data structure of the shape S.
 The resulting bounding box may be somewhat larger than the object.
◆ AddClose()
Adds the shape S to the bounding box B. This is a quick algorithm but only works if the shape S is composed of polygonal planar faces, as is the case if S is an approached polyhedral representation of an exact shape. Pay particular attention to this because this condition is not checked and, if it not respected, an error may occur in the algorithm for which the bounding box is built. Note that the resulting bounding box is not enlarged by the tolerance value of the subshapes as is the case with the Add function. So the added part of the resulting bounding box is closer to the shape S.
◆ AddOptimal()
Adds the shape S to the bounding box B. This algorith builds precise bounding box, which differs from exact geometry boundaries of shape only on shape entities tolerances Algorithm is the same as for method Add(..), but uses more precise methods for building boxes for geometry objects. If useShapeTolerance = True, bounding box is enlardged by shape tolerances and these tolerances are used for numerical methods of bounding box size calculations, otherwise bounding box is built according to sizes of uderlined geometrical entities, numerical calculation use tolerance Precision::Confusion().
