Does anyone know any good tutorials on how to compute if two rectangles in 3D (i mean, like a cube but with rectangular shape) intersects? It is enough with knowing if the collided, no need to compute the actual intersection... Thanks! Daniel.

bool hit(all the arguments..)
if (
((x1-xs1<x2-xs2 && x1+xs1>x2-xs2) || (x1-xs1<x2+xs2 && x1+xs1>x2+xs2) || (x1-xs1>x2-xs2 && x1+xs1<x2+xs2)) &&
((y1-ys1<y2-ys2 && y1+ys1>y2-ys2) || (y1-ys1<y2+ys2 && y1+ys1>y2+ys2) || (y1-ys1>y2-ys2 && y1+ys1<y2+ys2)) &&
((z1-zs1<z2-zs2 && z1+zs1>z2-zs2) || (z1-zs1<z2+zs2 && z1+zs1>z2+zs2) || (z1-zs1>z2-zs2 && z1+zs1<z2+zs2)) &&
) return true;
return false;

y1=box 1, y coordinate to the center
ys1=box 1, "y size" (height)
x2=box 2, x coordinate to the center

Didn't try it and just wrote it.. So if it works might be a bit questionable . Of course the algo only works for axis-aligned "3d-rectangles" but I guess that's what your're looking for anyway.
