The filter computes a rectangle with the smallest possible selected feature that contains all points of the given path. The angle of the resulting rectangle is then normalized as in the NormalizeRectangleOrientation filter.


This filter can throw an exception to report error. Read how to deal with errors in Error Handling.

List of possible exceptions:

Error type Description
DomainError Empty path on input in PathBoundingRectangle.

Complexity Level

This filter is available on Basic Complexity Level.
