Minimum Bounding

Minimum bounding is the selection of the type of bounding volume used to cover a 3D shape, that produces the least dead space around it ? i.e. matches the shape?s profile as best as possible. Bounding areas are usually 3D primitives: spheres, cuboids, columns, swept spheres and ellipsoids. The wrong choice ? a sphere to cover a long thin shape for example, results in unexpected and unrealistic collision detection.
