➨ Fields

The Box node specifies a rectangular parallelepiped box centred at (0, 0, 0) in the local coordinate system and aligned with the local coordinate axes. By default, the box measures 2 units in each dimension, from -1 to +1.

These are the X3D / X3DOM fields of this node. Values should usually be received / set as strings via DOM functions (i.e., using setAttribute("myFieldName", "myFieldValue") and getAttribute("myFieldName")).
Name Type Default Value Range Inheritance Standard Description
ccw SFBool true Rendering/X3DGeometryNode The ccw field defines the ordering of the vertex coordinates of the geometry with respect to user-given or automatically generated normal vectors used in the lighting model equations.
hasHelperColors SFBool false Specifies whether helper colors should be used, which will color each vertex with a different color. This will overwrite the color of the corresponding appearance node.
lit SFBool true Rendering/X3DGeometryNode Specifies whether this geometry should be rendered with or without lighting.
metadata SFNode X3DMetadataObject Core/X3DNode Field to add metadata information
size SFVec3f 2,2,2 [0, inf] The size field specifies the extents of the box along the X-, Y-, and Z-axes respectively and each component value shall be greater than zero.
solid SFBool true Rendering/X3DGeometryNode Specifies whether backface-culling is used. If solid is TRUE only front-faces are drawn.
useGeoCache SFBool true Rendering/X3DGeometryNode Most geo primitives use geo cache and others might later on, but one should be able to disable cache per geometry node. Defaults to global useGeoCache setting parameter.
