That depends on the size of your XYZ values. If the XYZ values are integers or words, then you need to send them in 3 integer messages, because you can't get 3 integers or 3 words to fit into one integer. But if your values are bytes, then this code will compress them into one integer:

I = (X * 65536) + (Y * 256) + Z

Then to decode I, use this:

Z = (I && 0xFF)
Y = (I && 0xFF00) / 256
X = (I && 0xFF0000) / 65536

Use memblocks, they're ideal when sending stuff with the network commands.
