And I'm saying that's wrong. The object's dimensions (length, width, or height) can be seen with other methods besides the one listed above, and can be set to whatever you want with this formula:

Object resize (1 / (object's dimension)) * (whatever size you want it to be)

Size can be manipulated or monitored as easily as any other dynamic property in Alice, like distance between objects or spatial relation.

or you can do something like set a certain variable to the width and watch the variable while the world is running. Then you can see the actual value of the object's width/height/length/whatever.


Projects
-Escape the Kitchen
-That ninja animation

Or you can use the Alice ruler that was made by DensetsuNoKaboom (here). Just import it as a billboard.

This is kind of off topic, but you said that you are trying to make a health bar. If you want to skip the hassle of making your own, you can download mine here.
