Research results of possibilities of packing a group of 3D-models of products in a layered build space using a genetic algorithm are presented. It is proposed to determine the efficiency of the optimization problem of rational arrangement of 3D-models group in the workspace of additive machines depending on the number of loaded products. Condition for efficient use of the layered build workspace is the minimum number of layers per product and the largest relative filling. Such criteria are

Industrial products with different geometrical complexity were selected as test 3D models. This approach allowed to perform a comparative analysis of the results depending on the design features of products. The practical realization was performed in the subsystem of packing 3D-models in a workspace, which is part of the technological preparation system for the manufacture of complex products by additive methods. This system was developed at the Department of "Integrated Technologies of Mechanical Engineering" named after M. Semko of NTU "KhPI".
