I want to create a volume cube around an object with equal padding from the center of the bounding box of the object. Ideally, this would be a single value input (ie. "padding amount").

The issue(s) I'm having are:

  1. Adjustments to the min/max values of the volume cube appear (to me) to be done from the origin of the object and not the center of the bounding box.
  2. I can tweak min/max values to get the padding I want, but it is cumbersome and not intuitive because it involves 2 values and (⬆️see 1 above⬆️).

Basically, I just want the volume cube to be larger than the bounding box with an easy way to adjust how much.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Try scaling up ("inflate") the input geometry by its normal to get some padding:
