Quickly save dxf files of layers or slices of many solids

I am looking for a way to quickly slice up a number of solids into uniform slices and then save a dxf file for each slice. What I am trying to get to is a single DXF file for each slice that can be used on a CNC machine to cut out each slice of these solids.


I am attaching a file with some idealized solids that are sliced but in real life the solids would be very different than these solids. The would be lots of different shapes and sizes and not the same solid in a linear pattern like this one is.


This problem is a little bit like the way a sterolithography printer prints layers. The goal is to do the same thing with a CNC machine without having to build each slice dxf file by hand.


Ideas anyone?
