Description

The Std SelBoundingBox command toggles the global bounding box highlighting mode. If this mode is switched on, selected objects are marked in a 3D view with a highlighted bounding box even if their ViewSelection Style is set to 'Shape'.

Usage

  1. There are several ways to invoke the command:
    • Press the Std SelBoundingBox.svg Std SelBoundingBox button.
    • Select the View → Std SelBoundingBox.svg Bounding box option from the menu.

Preferences

The related setting is stored: Tools → Edit parameters... → BaseApp → Preferences → View → ShowSelectionBoundingBox. It is a boolean value, the default is False.

Scripting

See also: FreeCAD Scripting Basics.

To change the ShowSelectionBoundingBox setting use the SetBool method of the appropriate ParameterGrp. The code sample does not work if FreeCAD is in console mode.

import FreeCAD, FreeCADGui

grp = FreeCAD.ParamGet('User parameter:BaseApp/Preferences/View')
if grp.GetBool('ShowSelectionBoundingBox'):
  grp.SetBool('ShowSelectionBoundingBox',False)
else:
  grp.SetBool('ShowSelectionBoundingBox',True)
