CAM software help(part nesting/duplication)

I've been cutting parts via my fireball v90 cnc and have had a long road to get it setup properly but now I am running good. I am just getting tired of manually resetting the machine to cut another of the same part. I heard that there is a way to duplicate parts into a sheet and cut them but I'm not entirely sure where to start. I've been using the free version of CamBam as my CAM software but not sure to buy full version or go with another that is better. Any help or comments are greatly appreciated, thanks!

or something like this
nesting is a very tedious job but once done no need to do it again
i use auto cad insert blocks and x ref them then when you up date the dwg. file it will automatically up date your layout
if you have compufoil and other software that will nest parts then you can insert layouts form that sofware in dxf. format and x ref them in to your autocad layouts
