"also note, like most things in life, there are many solutions to problems, for instance finding the center of a face, here is 3 different ways but we see the middle option takes less computational time. So as your definitions grow computation power…"

"I think your questions are great, but alot of them are in those materials, hence why I suggest them. It is only for your benifiet. There is never to many questions but sometimes the answer is readily available. also note the search bar to the right…"

"new problem - how do I extract just one point (point 0 for example) from the list of vertices points?? "

"well that was my next question but area does the same thing for the center too, as long as I don't explode"

"and to get the center of the box itself use volume."

"awesome, that works! I ran into a problem, it seems that when you have faces overlapping or points overlapping, you can't find them (it won't highlight in green because there is an un-highlighted point or face on top of it in red). Is…"

"Hi Luke, best would be to Explode the box (so you get 6 rectangular faces), then use the Area component to fid the Area centroid point of each face. -- David Rutten david@mcneel.com Poprad, Slovakia"

"This makes me thing maybe FAQ needs a "lingo" thread to let people know what things are called. For example component is component, not button, or battery, ect."

David Rutten replied to Luke W's discussion How to make a BREP?
"The word Brep stands for Boundary Representation. That in itself doesn't tell you much, but allow me to break down the general idea behind Breps. In Rhino UI itself, we don't use the word Brep, that one is only for programmers. Instead…"
