Um. Dumb mistake. I translated only the final object statement, not for #declare
one. Changed those around and bounding box stays with it.
I was trying it too quick without realizing what went wrong.

However, maybe I'm confused about Location.
If I use it for object translate the wireframe thins out too much to see, yet if
Vector is used instead it remains very visible.

I was guessing Location to be for the object, if given that, but it works for
camera location as long as Vector is given to the object.
