We analyze the interactions of (2+1) -dimensional parametric solitons and demonstrate nonplanar beam switching in a bulk X(2) medium, which includes controllable soliton repulsion, spiraling, and fusion. An analytical model predicting the results of the soliton scattering is derived and verified by direct numerics.
