I would second Sketchup and the plugin mentioned. Yes, Sketchup will let you draw out parts and move them around The plugin will let you define whether you want an inside or outside cut, offset the tool path for bit diameter and output the Gcode that can be read by almost any CNC program (Like LinuxCNC, Mach3, etc.) to control most any machine.
