def setup():
    py5.size(100, 100, py5.P3D)
    py5.sphere_detail(8)
    s1 = py5.create_shape(py5.SPHERE, 40)
    z_values = [s1.get_vertex_z(i) for i in range(s1.get_vertex_count())]
    py5.shape(s1, 50, 50)
    py5.println(s1.get_depth(), min(z_values), max(z_values))  # 80, -40, 40

Description

Get the Py5Shape object’s depth. This method only makes sense when using the P3D renderer. It will return 0 when using default renderer.

Underlying Java method: PShape.getDepth
