depending on the type of structure you use, ypu have to do three loops 
to transfer the 3d array. the basic code to transfer an array looks 
something like this (let con be an stl container like std::list<T>, 
where T is either another list or a double):

void putElement(std::list<T> const & con) {
	MLPutFunction(getLink(), "List", con.size());
	for (std::list<T>::const_iterator iter = con.begin(); iter != 
con.end(); iter++)


and for the basic data type:

void putElement(float & elem)
	MLPutFloat(getLink(), elem);

getLink() should return the current mathlink you are using.

hope that helps,
