Not  everything is lost. You could make a boolean 3D grid as big as
your memory allows to, with True in the spheres and False in empty
space. Rotate it is just matrix multiplication, and project over one
axis with .any.

The shape of the sphere doesn't have oscillations, so a regular grid
is a good approach to the integration.
