# BoundSphere Class

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

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

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

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

## BoundSphere ()

Constructor. Creates an empty bounding sphere.

## BoundSphere (variable v)

Constructor. Creates a bounding sphere initialized by one of the following:
• BoundBox - the bounding box.
• BoundSphere - the bounding sphere.

### Arguments

• variable v - Variable of one of the following types:
• BoundBox bb - The bounding box.
• BoundSphere bs - The bounding sphere.

## BoundSphere (variable v0, variable v1)

Constructor. Creates a bounding sphere initialized by one of the following:
• vec3 and float - the center and radius of the bounding sphere.
• BoundSphere and mat4 - the bounding sphere and its transformation matrix.

### Arguments

• variable v0 - Argument of one of the following types:
• vec3 point - Coordinates of the sphere center.
• BoundSphere bs - The bounding sphere.
• variable v1 - Argument of one of the following types:
• float radius - Radius of the bounding sphere.
• mat4 transform - Transformation matrix.

## voidexpand (variable v)

Depending on the variables passed as arguments, the function performs the following:
• If vec3 is passed, the function expands the current bounding sphere so that the given point is inside this bounding sphere.
• If BoundSphere is passed, the function expands the current bounding sphere so that it can be described around the given bounding sphere.
• If BoundBox is passed, the function expands the current bounding sphere so that it can be described around the given bounding box.

### Arguments

• variable v - Argument of one of the following types:
• vec3 point - Coordinates of the point.
• BoundSphere bs - The bounding sphere.
• BoundBox bb - The bounding box.

## vec3getCenter ()

### Return value

Coordinates of the sphere center.

Returns the radius of the bounding sphere.

### Return value

Radius of the sphere.

## intinsideAll (variable v)

Checks if the given bounding sphere / box is inside the current bounding sphere.

### Arguments

• variable v - Argument of one of the following types:
• BoundSphere bs - The bounding sphere.
• BoundBox bb - The bounding box.

### Return value

1 if the bounding sphere / box is inside the current bounding sphere; otherwise, 0.

## intinside (variable v)

Depending on the variable passed as an argument, the function performs the following:
• If vec3 is passed, the function checks if the given point is inside the current bounding sphere.
• If BoundBox is passes, the function checks if the given bounding box is inside the current bounding sphere.
• If BoundSphere is passed, the function checks if the given bounding sphere is inside the current bounding sphere.

### Arguments

• variable v - Argument of one of the following types:
• vec3 point - Coordinates of the point.
• BoundSphere bs - The bounding sphere.
• BoundBox bb - The bounding box.

### Return value

1 if the point / bounding box / bounding sphere is inside the current bounding sphere; otherwise, 0.

## intinside (variable v0, variable v1)

Checks if the specified sphere of box is inside the current bounding box. Variables, passed as arguments, can be the following:

### Return value

1 if the sphere / box is inside the bounding sphere; otherwise, 0.

## intisValid ()

Checks if the bounding sphere radius has a positive value.

### Return value

1 if the radius is positive; otherwise, 0.

## voidsetTransform (mat4 transform)

Sets the transformation matrix for the current bounding sphere.

### Arguments
