I need to know if one convex hull is inside the volume of another. I can't seem to think of a good algorithm for this. I've been Googling it for a couple hours now and I've found nothing...

Totally contained, or partial intersection?

Partial intersection is easy, not sure about the other one :)

Looks like it could be useful but I forgot to mention that I need to do it in 3D.

EDIT: Nevermind, I see it covers that! smile.gif
