yeah, have fun with that. i took an intro NC course, we did enough work with g-code for me to respect the hell out of the guys who programmed that stuff before there was software to generate it for you.
if you're looking for 2D stuff, look into PartKAM. free, open-source, all that, it's flash-based and can take 2D CAD files and a couple other filetypes, and generates toolpaths and g-code and such. for what it costs, it's pretty nifty. never used the code it generates to actually cut a part, but it looks pretty solid.
otherwise, i'd have to imagine that most current CAD software packages will have something included to generate g-code. pretty sure Pro/E does, can't really say for sure on everything else, though.
