I've created a cube polygon and dragged it somewhere in the scene. Now I obviously have its centre's coordinates, and mathmetically, should be able to determine the coordinate of any point of its surface but that would be troublesome. Is there a way that I can find the coordinates of any arbitary point on the surface by clicking on it? Any help would be appreciated - M

Thanks. M
