    I made a bounding box selecting 2 points that makes up the minCorner and maxCorner but then after that
    I would like to select the bounding box face that is parallel to whatever existing face that is selected by the user.

    A bounding box is evaluated based on the entities you pass in. You can pass a query for any set of entities as the entities of evBoundingBox.

    Once you have a bounding box (represented as a minCorner and a maxCorner), you could modify those values. This is only necessary if you are using bounding box as input to some other operation. (Nothing in our standard library takes bounding boxes as input).

    So, do you want to calculate a bounding box of more entities? Or do you want to change those calculated values by a some fixed amount?
