CNC foam cutter powered by Mindstorm

i had the idea to use my Lego Mindstorm electronics to make a CNC foam cutter. i've read about and seen a video of a working cnc router entirely made out of legos. it only could cut foam because the motors are not stepper motors and legos don't like to be put under a lot of stress. so, i want to make a hot wire foam cutter which is easy, and then make it so that the table can be slid around by the mindstorm parts. my problem is, i do not no how to get CAD files onto the NXT (mindstorm controller). i know it's do able with autocad but i don't know how. any body know? i currently can use google sketchup and prodesktop 8. i'm better at using pro desktop so i'd rather use it.
