Hi everyone. I would greatly appreciate if you can help me with a link to a modeling software program or a formula for calculating the following: I have piece of rock which equals to 1 cubic meter (length/height/width- one meter each side). I need to cut pieces that equal to 45cm X 45cm X 3cm (length/width/height). How many of these pieces i can get out of a 1 cubic meter stone? Regards Thank you very much P.S. The reason for the software is that i need to make it visual. I have no problem using a pencil and a ruler but drawing and calculating 30 different models is just nuts. Besides it has to be a computer presentation with a possibility of printing. Thank you again
