## About

The minimum bounding box of a point set is the same as the minimum bounding box of its convex hull, a fact which may be used heuristically to speed up computation.

The minimum bounding box of a point set is the same as the minimum bounding box of its convex hull.

## Type

### Axis Aligned

The axis-aligned minimum bounding box (or AABB) for a given point set is its minimum bounding box subject to the constraint that the edges of the box are parallel to the (Cartesian) coordinate axes.

### Arbitrarily oriented

The arbitrarily oriented minimum bounding box is the minimum bounding box, calculated subject to no constraints as to the orientation of the result.

### Object oriented

The object has its own local coordinate system and the bounding box coordinates are relative to these axes.
