Here's a program for generating sets of non-overlapping circles. They will be
saved to an .inc file in the form of a 1D array of 3D vectors. It's not 100%
accurate, but you can change the accuracy to such a high level that it's hard to
tell. There are several other options available to change the outcome. Support
for using an input image to determine the circle sizes is also included, as are
some scene files for viewing the result.

Just unzip the file and run circle_place.exe. Make sure to save the points
before running the example scenes. What you do with it is your problem :)

Happy Raytracing!


P.S. I'm not sure if this will work on other platforms, but you can always
