# Unigine::BoundBox Class

This class serves to construct the bounding box in single precision coordinates.

Notice
Instances of this class are deleted automatically when it is necessary.

In case of double precision coordinates, the bounding box should be constructed by using the WorldBoundBox class. It includes the same functions as the BoundBox class, but its functions deal with the double precision coordinates.

Notice
To support both single and double precision builds, you can use the WorldBoundBox class only. The engine will automatically substitute it with the BoundBox if it is required.
