you want 512 3x3 binary matrices that are all different. Well, this 

exhausts just about all such matrices. We can therefore create them in 

an orderly way instead of randomly. Now, all 9 bits of one matrix can be 

thougth of as a binary number between 0 and 511. We therefore, first 

generate the numbers in decimal notation, convert them to 9 binary bits 

and assemble them in  3x3 matrices:

d=IntegerDigits[Range[0,511],2,9] ;

d=Partition[#,3]&/@ d ;

this gives an ordered list of all possible such matrices.

hope this helps, Daniel
