Isn't there an option in the array tool for randomization? If not there should be one!

You can use graphite modelling tools -> object paint -> paint objects. You can load in a few different variants, choose how much they're spaced, rotated etc and just draw them in.

Having said that... it would take about 10 minutes to do it manually.

If it's random sized boxes try Fill my Bookshelves script...obviously using boxes not books ;)

Back in the good old days you'd just simulate gravity on rigid body loaves with the bread-basket as your collider, et voila. Admittedly this works best with smaller objects falling into a large container - ie, rounds into a crate, or sweeties into a bowl. But the principle still applies.

Not sure why anyone hasn't suggested this yet - unless it's been ripped out of max.

I'm a bit out of the loop.

True, you could use mass fx... and that isn't overkill at all. ;)

Could use particles as well, make it rain bread.

What you been up to Cecil? Finished the airport stuff?

Using rigid bodies is the best way to fill things naturally, and shouldn't be overkill

(unless the set up is a pain in a balls in mass fx, I have no idea)

Here's a massfx tutorial which is well put together:
