This is an exercise on how to use the box fill option. This feature uses the primary package dimensions and fits as many packages it can into the standard cases taking into account the maximum slack limitations.

We are going to work with inches and pounds, therefore go to Window
> Standard Cases and Pallets
and check the top chart Standard English Unit Cases - External Dimensions
to make sure you have standard cases with all three dimensions.
Open a new document window starting from primary package on File
> New Data Sheet
> Start from Primary Package
Change the units on Tools > Units > in/lbs.
Select the the option Fill Standard Cases
from the Standard Cases
menu in the input window and the appropriate box Type
(in our case is B1). If you prefer you can change the pallet.
Since we have all the needed data use the Recalculate
option from the Tools
menu to see the results; box fills and pallet loads.
