-====== Get Automatic Size (preliminary) ======+====== Get Automatic Size ====== 
 +{{ :tools:getautosizegui.png|}} 
 + 
 +This node exposes the automatic size as computed by LightWave 3D for the current node graph. 
 + 
 +From observation, we expect this to be the un-deformed size of the base mesh or the current surface on the base mesh (depending on the context of the node graph)
 + 
 +When the node is added for the first time, it will automatically get the current automatic size. 
 + 
 +===== Controls ===== 
 + 
 +==== Padding ==== 
 + 
 +The padding is will be added to the automatic size. 
 + 
 +==== Get Automatic Size ==== 
 + 
 +Clicking this button will get the current automatic size as computed by LightWave 3D. 
 + 
 +This may be required if the size of the base mesh changed. 
 + 
 +==== Centre Position (ready only) ==== 
 + 
 +The centre of the automatic size. This value is read only. 
 + 
 +==== Size (ready only) ==== 
 + 
 +The automatic size returned by LightWave 3D and modified by the padding. This value is read only. 
 + 
 +==== Minimum Bound (ready only) ==== 
 + 
 +The smallest coordinates of the bounding box defined by the automatic size. This value is read only. 
 + 
 +==== Maximum Bound (ready only) ==== 
 + 
 +The largest coordinates of the bounding box defined by the automatic size. This value is read only. 
 + 
 +===== Connections ===== 
 +{{ :tools:getautosizenode.png|}} 
 +==== Inputs ==== 
 +=== Padding === 
 + 
 +A vector where the X,Y and Z components will be used to pad the computed size. 
 + 
 +==== Outputs ==== 
 +=== Padding === 
 + 
 +The padding as defined via the input or the GUI. 
 + 
 +=== Position === 
 + 
 +The centre of the automatic size. 
 +=== Size === 
 +The automatic size returned by LightWave 3D and modified by the padding. 
 +=== Minimum === 
 +The smallest coordinates of the bounding box defined by the automatic size. 
 +=== Maximum === 
 +The largest coordinates of the bounding box defined by the automatic size.
