Actually rotating the camera will not change the results of "measure minmax. If you feel unsave about the shape of you molecules and the suggested implementation, you could add the Z dimension aswell, which is currently ignored by my example code.

I think it will generally not make much of a difference for the resulting zoom value. Also you might have noticed the argument that the proc can take to influence the default zoom behavior as a factor.
