Please help someone. when I try to open or create drawings in autocad (which i downloaded recently from the edu community) it gives me a warning which says "the drawing file being opened was not created by a product from an autodesk education suite. if you save this drawing it will always be plotted with the follow plot stamp: produced by an autodesk education program.it is recommended that you save this drawing with a different file name." but I have saved and resaved drawings, tried different extensions and still it won't plot or print without this plot stamp. What is most likely causing it and what can I do to remove it. Thanks
That is educational-license AutoCAD working as designed: you are not intended to be able to remove the educational plot stamp.
- That renaming suggestion was just to help you to avoid contaminating the original drawing.
There are some tricks to get rid of the stamp, but as educational user there is no need to do that: the school accepts drawings with it.
If you have a NON-EDUCATIONAL version of AutoCAD, use RECOVER on the tainted educational drawing to remove the plot stamp. But you must have the FULL or LT version of CAD.
The easy & genius ...
How is violation of EULA student agreed to in any way "genius"?
You might sign up for a class on engineering ethics or just ethics.
See if your school offers this class (kind of sad that some do, but they have to because of unethical people).
There is a much different attitude toward piracy, cracks, and illicit use of software in certain parts of Europe and Asia than we subscribe to here. And unfortunately it drives the cost of the tools up for everyone in the end. Glad to see that the Administrators strip this sort of thing out of these forums when they find it.
