Need an Example of a 3D Packing

Dear All,

Like Ilkka Ikkonen I have been working on the arbitrary shape 3D packing
problem for the last couple of years. For some preliminary results see my
web page:

Now my request... I need some more test cases, hopefully from the real
world. For a complete test case I need a collection of objects that
almost fill or over fill a specified container, (cylinder or box volume).
All I need is a set of objects described in the STL format and a quick
description of the container.
