3D technique?

Is there a technique that connotes 3D loci. As in having a locus with 3 imaginary compartments as in x,y and z? like 3 walls where you can go in alphabetical order to organise your imagery. If this is a thing is there more ways to organise the imagery like the pillar technique which I heard from Anthony Metivier.
Does anybody know if this is a thing? I would appreciate your thoughts.



I’m not sure. Sounds like this is how method of loci already works???

You can arrange memory palaces however you want. There are some posts about nesting locations here:

I’m not sure exactly what you mean by walls in alphabetical order, but I often arrange locations in rooms like this:

The square at the bottom is the door. Location #9 is the ceiling and #10 is the floor.

If you pick 5 objects in each location for nested locations, you could get 50 locations out of a simple room.

There’s a good post here on choosing the size of locations: The Efficiency of Different Card Memorization Systems - #21 by Boris
