I think it's a bug for Sphere. It works for other things. plot1 = ParametricPlot3D[{Sin[u], Sin[u], Cos[u]} {Cos[v], Sin[v], 1}, {u, 0, Pi}, {v, 0, 2 Pi}] PlotRange /. AbsoluteOptions[plot1] {{-1., 1.}, {-1., 1.}, {-1., 1.}} -- David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/ "Szabolcs Horv=E1t" <szhorvat at gmail.com> wrote in message news:fvhevb$4gp$1 at smc.vnet.net... > > Is there a reliable way to get the coordinates and size of the bounding > box of a Graphics3D object? > > I tried > > PlotRange /.
