The Part Box command creates a parametric box solid, a rectangular cuboid. In the coordinate system defined by its DataPlacement property, the bottom face of the box lies on the XY plane with its front left corner at the origin, and its front edge parallel to the X axis.
- There are several ways to invoke the command:
- The box is created.
- Optionally change the dimensions and DataPlacement of the box by doing one of the following:
A Part Box object created with the scripting example below is shown here.
- A Part Box can also be created with the Part Primitives command. With that command you can specify the dimensions and placement at creation time.

A Part Box object is derived from a Part Feature object and inherits all its properties. It also has the following additional properties:
The object has the same attachment properties as a Part Part2DObject.
- DataLength (
Length): The length of the box. This is the dimension in its X direction. The default is
- DataWidth (
Length): The width of the box. This is the dimension in its Y direction. The default is
- DataHeight (
Length): The height of the box. This is dimension in its Z direction. The default is
A Part Box can be created with the
addObject() method of the document:
box = FreeCAD.ActiveDocument.addObject("Part::Box", "myBox")
"myBox"is the name for the object.
- The function returns the newly created object.
import FreeCAD as App doc = App.activeDocument() box = doc.addObject("Part::Box", "myBox") box.Length = 4 box.Width = 8 box.Height = 12 box.Placement = App.Placement(App.Vector(1, 2, 3), App.Rotation(75, 60, 30)) doc.recompute()
