View Full Version : 3d Volume measurement

05-12-2009, 08:41 PM
I have a simple problem. I am trying to fill a box with smaller boxes of different sizes. Think of it this way - I am filling a cardboard box with books of different sizes. I do not want to waste any space in the box. I want to fill the box as optimally as I can. All I need is a visual representation of this task. Nothing fancy. I can figure out the mathematical part - its simple - figure out the volume of the big box and then figure out the volumes on the smaller boxes. But not all small box would fill in the space. How can I show this graphically with flash? Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance

You might consider using a 3D engine, because it takes a lot of math to make 3d elements in Flash. I haven't used any of these, nor have I done 3D stuff, but heard they do amazing things.
