I’m not really sure how to word this, but essentially I want to find the 2d position of a 3d object on the screen. I’m trying to a make system that creates a 2d rectangular overlay using a control over a 3d object, but I’m not sure how to create a system that places the rectangle. So, how could I make a script that creates a GUI rectangle over a 3d cube?

Nevermind, after lots and lots of digging I found out about camera.unproject_position(Vector3) from another page! :slight_smile:

var answer = $Camera.unproject_position($box.get_translation())
print( answer )
$Sprite.position = Vector2(answer )
