The solution of the one dimensional Schrödinger equation for a particle in a one dimensional box is $$Asin \frac{n \pi x}{a}$$. But how about if the box is 2D or 3D?

Have you considered actually solving the Schroedinger equation for these cases?...An attempt at that would probably be a good way to start.
