Packing in 3D

Hey there,

I can't believe nobody on this list has a packing challange for me? All I
need is a description of a packing volume and a number of stl parts to be
packed! I can even handle large stl files though I prefer them under a
megabyte or so each (doing this on a simple PC).

I will quite happily post the results in a VRML file on a web page.
Come-on, challange me, see if I can get all the parts into a small volume.
(Pure 3D close fitting puzzles would be a little too hard I think but I'll
happily try one anyway.)
