These 2 commerical software packages will help you optimize your files by stacking objects as close as possible to each other, and eliminating duplicate lines:

Only does nesting, not duplicate line erasing. Works as a plug in for Windows Illustrator CS5 and later. Unfortunately doesn't work with CS2 or Macs.

http://deepnest.io/

Powerful, with nesting and merging of common lines so the laser doesn't cut the same path twice. Stand-alone software. Expensive, costs up to $7.50 per file processed.

Free open source, made by the same author as Deepnest. Does not do line merging.
