Boxes suck, sphere-box interaction is modeled as contact with fictive
sphere. For anything that is beyond simple elasticity, use Facets. You
can also make arbitrary triangulated surfaces with facets (especially
with GTS which I am integrating right now), which is not possible with

OTOH, Facets have no mass, therefore cannot be dynamic (they can move,
but not as a result of impacts etc).
