Is there any CAM software for nesting 3D models for 3D printing using SLS, SLA etc. not CNC glue guns?

That makes things a bit ... how should i say this ... complicated ! :)
One idea ( i did not say it was a good idea ) is to make each part at different places and then at different heights and use a python filter to open the resulting gcode files and arrange them by say file name number. Thinking of it while writing this that would work for different levels but not for parts on the same level, so make multiple parts at one level, then more parts at another level and so on. It would be very usable for same height stuff on each level, but not very efficient for different height stuff.
Outa ideas for now. :silly:

github.com/Jack000/SVGnest Saw this for 2D nesting. Might be handy to some here.

www.autodesk.com/compare/compare-features/netfabb not free or open, and I don't know how well it actually works for 3D packing.
