I want to remove watermark in edu version

Hello, I wanted to know how to take off the watermark when I plot on Ad2
Educational Version. Please help.
The phrase "PRODUCED BY AN AUTODESK EDUCATIONAL PRODUCT" prints out on
every side of my drawings. Please tell me how to remove this. This is
important for final presentations at school. Also, my school will be
upgrading to 2000 and I know the watermark will be a shock to students and
faculty. Please consider removing the watermark from the program, as it was
not present in release 14. Autodesk can probably create a downloadable file
or something of the sort to eliminate this problem. I hope they do. I
have already seen the reactions of a professor who saw the watermark in one
of my drawings, and couldn't believe that it was not removable. The removal
of the watermark will definetely be a relief to many students.
Thanks. God bless. Brian Font.

The only way I have found to remove the watermark from the education version
of AutoCAD is to but the full version. This is AutoDesk's way of trying to
deter people from making production drawings with the Educational version.

If you could remove the watermark then whats the point. The R14 educational
version that I have seen had the watermark.

The watermark comes about because in the past many people purchased the
educational version then used it to produce commercial drawings. I imagine
the first step in getting Autodesk to remove the watermark is to figure out
an alternative way to prevent dishonest users from pirating the software. :smileyhappy:

Brian,

Do they still have the hardware lock for the educational version? I
know that is one way they kept things under control as far a piracy.
You could not copy it all over and give it to your friends or
businesses.

I had a hardware lock and that was a pain because it died a couple
times. I was out of luck for a week or so until I got replacements, but
it was better than the watermark. Really there must be a better way. I
know how bad it looked on presentation drawings.

Did you ever think about using whiteout and taking to a copy place. For a
few bucks you'll have a nice reproduction and never know the watermark was
there. Even paper taped over the watermark will work.

I think Autodesk did the right thing, so that dwgs produced with educational version can be recognized. Is your faculty expecting
the students to spend $4000 for full version of AutoCAD?. The drawings are not any inferior for educational purposes, I think.

Evan,

There is no longer a hardware lock, but there is a software based lock.

Hi Ms. Hurley,
Will this software based lock eliminate the watermark? If it does, could I
get it? I just recently leased autocad for 2 years and I think I could
still exchange it. I don't know what would be best.
God bless. Brian Font

Dear. Mr Swanson,
If this is the case, then the watermark is pointless in the first place
because people that would want to use it commercially could do the same.
For students it just means time(and oh how we need it) and money. I few
bucks means a whole lot to us students.
God Bless. Brian.
