If you want to build a ship don't herd people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea. (Antoine-Marie-Roger de Saint-Exupéry)

Packer 2D/3D

Packer is a Windows program implementing a different number of optimization algorithms to store in 2D space or in 3D space the maximum number of rectangles/boxes accordingly.

The main interface is shown below:


The main features are:

  • 2D optiminzations algorithms (guilliotine and not)
  • 3D optiminzations algorithms
  • Load/store solutions in pk2 and pk3 files
  • Printing capabilities
  • Possibility to connect to external DB to load/store solutions
  • 3D interface uses OpenGL to allow navigation inside the 3D container
  • 3D solutions offer top/front/left views
