As has been demonstrated, the number of geometrically distinct
arrangements of legal objects to fill an (n)x(n)x(n) container
is huge for all but the smallest values of n, but I don't
follow the applications you've alluded to.

You've suggested that such arrangments might have use in data
compression and/or in cryptography. I don't get it.
