Growth of perturbations and fragmentation of isothermal sheet-like clouds are computed three dimensionally. An initial cloud is a self-gravitating equilibrium gas layer with small fluctuations, which have the form ei(kxk+kyy). The simulations of models with various values of kx and ky are performed.
