Avoiding intersection of 3d layers

Hi! I'm a newbie when it comes to scripts. I use a lot of scripts made by others, but I don't know whats going on under the hood..
I have a question about a problem I have in After Effects and if this can be solved with scripting. Sorry if it's sounds totally out of bounds..

I am working on a project in After Effects where I'm creating pop-up houses in a book. When I'm distributing and rotating the 3d-layers
I have to mask a LOT to avoid the intersection of the layers. So what I'm wondering about is if it's possible whit scripting to avoid the visibility
of a layer in the area where it intersect with another layer?

Could you be a little more specific ?

You want layers that are behind other layers (that have an alpha) not to show up ?

You could remove the alpha of the 'other layers' or bake an alpha. Show us what you want, I'm a tad confused.
