In 1994, S. K. Stein and S. Szabo posed a problem concerning, simple, three-dimensional shapes, known as, semicrosses, or tripods. By definition, a tripod is formed by a corner and the three adjacent edges of an integer cube. How densely can one fill the space with non-overlapping tripods of a given size? In particular, is it possible to fill a constant fraction of the space as the tripod size tends to infinity.? In this paper, we settle the second question in the negative: the fraction of the space that can be filled with tripods of a growing size must be infinitely small.
