Vcarve will use the *.dwg yes. Im unsure if Vcarve shows the watermark tbh, as Zero said, I think that is just for plotting that the watermark shows. I can ask my buddy and get back to you, but we both have full AutoCAD 2009 Copies so it might be difficult to watermark them .

If youre going to get the student version to learn CAD anyways, then I think the watermark is of minimal concern. Learn CAD, use something for G-code, and go from there.

Actually you didn't say that you'd be generating the code from a DWG. From your posts I thought you were going to use the DWG to do the milling directly, which obviously isn't possible.

I'm not sure, but I think the watermark might only be generated when you actually try and print a drawing, so you might not have to worry about that anyway. I suggest that you go and download the trial version of AutoCAD to see how it actually deals with applying the watermark so you know what you actually have to worry about.

You said you were going to use the DWG with CNC milling, but you didn't say anything about how you were planning to convert it to code first. That's why I was confused. Anyway, even if the watermark is included in the DWG (I don't think it will be), it should still be fairly easy to just not include that when you make the tool paths in whatever CAM software you and your friend will be using.

Look like a find a free solution, today I was at a customer place, a civil engineer, he give me a full retail version of AutoCAD 2000 , + 5 Books . I just finish installing it on my e8400 with Windows XP. So for a wild I will make my learning on this one.
