Finding The Center Of A Model

Q: How can I find the center of a model, so I can position the camera to completely display the model (much like the "home" camera position in the Simple Viewer)?

A: Use the Q3View_StartBoundingBox and Q3View_EndBoundingBox routines to compute an object's bounding box. Next, use the data in the TQ3BoundingBox structure returned by Q3View_EndBoundingBox to compute the center of the object.
