Fitting objects into a cube

  1. Aug 19, 2003 #1
    Hello, I'm writing some code that will check if an array of products with given dimensions (length, width, height) can fit inside of a shipping box of given dimensions (length, width, height).

    Is there an algorithm to do this, or could someone point me in the right direction of where to go with this? I have my own theories, but while I'm competent with math, I'm not a math genius either...
