Inserting assets based on their approximate ratio

The goal is to insert assets from a pool, depending on their (physical) size ratio. The pool of assets is seen in the following image. Colors are (only) used to visually emphasize the physical size ratio.

Since the assets are color coded with their ratio, it is visible that "long" and "wide" Lots utilize black and pink assets, while "square-ish" Lots utilize red and blue assets.

Note the color variations in the next two images.

n = 1: "best ratio"

Lot -->
    innerRectangle(scope) { shape : Insert }

Insert -->
    alignScopeToAxes(y)
    s('1,0,'1)
    i(assetApproxRatio("/myProject/assets/cube_*.obj", "xz", 1))

n = 3: "choose randomly one of the best three ratios"

Lot -->
    innerRectangle(scope) { shape : Insert }

Insert -->
    alignScopeToAxes(y)
    s('1, 0, '1)
    i(assetApproxRatio("/myProject/assets/cube_*.obj", "xz", 3))
