No, there is no code for that. For it to be maximum possible it would have to solve the sphere packing problem, which is generally unsolved for quite low numbers of spheres. I do not know the state of current research beyond roughly 26 spheres, the solution is unknown except perhaps at special numbers.
There are packings that no-one has been able to improve upon, but it is different to go from "pretty good" to "best known" (hard to establish in some cases, 19 took decades of research) to "best possible" (which is what you ask for.)

There is too little information to answer this question properly. Do you mean non-overlapping bubbles? and that they contact each other so that the space is maximised?
