In addition you can choose a unit like cm or m or ft. You can't mix metric and imperial units.
If you decide to enter the weight, make sure it represents the weight of a single individual item for a quantity of 1 only.
Observe the difference when the ⬆ icon is checked versus unchecked, especially in Bottom to Top mode:
In the images below, the blue boxes will touch the ground, while the placement of other items may or may not achieve this. Keep in mind that selecting this option may prevent an item from fitting, even if there appears to be space available.
Here's a visual comparison of the Back to Front mode versus the Bottom to Top mode:
Imagine that you have some boxes and you need to fit them into a larger box or a container. BinDrake helps you find the best way to arrange the boxes inside the container, based on the dimensions you provide.
BinDrake uses a smart algorithm that tries different combinations of box placements and picks the one that uses the least space. This algorithm has some randomness, so you might get different results for the same input.
You need a subscription to use BinDrake. Subscriptions are monthly and you can cancel anytime.
You can use decimals with up to 2 digits for length, width, height, weight. The values should be between 1 and 20000 for length, width, height and between 0 and 200000 for weight.
You can use extra treshold and space setting in container. Then you can see the extra space in the container and calculation will be done with this extra space.
No, weight is optional. You can leave it 0 if you don’t need it.
h_filter and v_filter are tools that help you see through the boxes in the container. h_filter removes the front wall of the container and shows you what’s behind it. v_filter removes the top lid of the container and shows you what’s inside it.
Container mode lets you choose how many containers you want to use for your cargo. If you think your cargo will fit into one container, choose Single. If you think you will need more than one container, choose Multiple.
Priority lets you choose how to prioritize the items in the container. It is a number between 1 and 100 and the higher number means higher priority. For example, if you have 2 items with priority 1 and 2 items with priority 2, the items with priority 2 will be placed in the container first. Priority can also be combined with Stack different priority option. If you disallow it, items with different priorities will not be stacked on top of each other.
If you select disallow, items with different priorities will be placed in the container separately. If you select allow, items with different priorities can be stacked on top of each other. Let's say you want to stack some items on top of each other at the back of the container. You can do that by giving them the same priority and Disallowing the Stack different priority option.
Load mode lets you choose how to fill the container with your boxes. Back to Front mode pushes the boxes to the back side of the container and leaves more space on the left side. Bottom To Top mode fills the container from the bottom up and leaves more space on the top.
For example, you might want to know how many boxes of a certain size can fit into the container. Fill Container option in Quantity mode lets you do that.
Yes, you can save or share your results easily. After each calculation, you will see that the address bar changes. You can copy the URL from there or click on the Copy Result URL button. You can bookmark the page or send the link to someone else. They can view your results for free, but they have to register and log in first, which is also free.
