Make it a cube. Length, width, and height are each cbrt(37.1 cm^3) which is around 3.335221152861612935327329519331 cm

Most efficient arrangement is cubic, so the dimensions are 3.335 cm x 3.335 cm x 3.335 cm. You can probably find a proof in various books (that the cube has the minimum surface area).
