I am getting started with the Blender Python API and there is something I do not understand. Lets say I have an object called "myObject" and I wanted to get its dimensions, then I type
in the python console and get the result. The API http://www.blender.org/documentation/blender_python_api_2_71_release/bpy.types.Object.html#bpy.types.Object states, that an object also has a bound_box. But if I type
simply the command I typed is returned! Why is that and how could I have known from the doc of the API? Also, when I type
it only returns "false". Why? If I go to the object properties panel and click "Bound" the bounding box is drawn. Why does that work and doing the same (?) via the console does not?
