Selecting the Origin point from the basic bound box

You can use a more basic approximation to the object’s geometry by using a global bound box that surrounds the local bounds of the object. This bound box ignores the object’s geometry, which usually means that it doesn’t always touch the object’s surface.

To use this bound box, use the shortcut Ctrl + G or by disabling the Use geometry button in the Origin point panel from the Sidebar (N), when the origin Target is set to use the Objects Bounds’.

Both global and local bound boxes are drawn simultaneously in this mode.
