    Educational Versions work with CAM / CNC?

    .
    I'm taking a CAD class thru a local community college. As part of the class, I'm getting a three year license for both AutoCAD 2012 and Inventor. I have seen that I can also purchase a "perpetual" license for this software from places like Academic Superstore, ect.
    .
    I know about the limits on commercial usage of these programs, as well as the "watermarks" that print on any paper output.
    .
    My question is if I can use these versions with a homemade CNC system?
    .
    Thanks!!

    The education versions of Inventor can export DXF and STL files which can be imported into 2D or 3D CAM programs. I've done it, it works fine.

    It is certainly a fact that thesis is an important part of research based program, but first it is important to know Top Salesforce Exams brainDumps cause many students apply for universities that have bad rating and many of their programs aren't accredited.
