Alec,

Cause: VCarve is unable to interpret the DWG 2018 file format.

Solution: Resave the drawing in AutoCAD to the DWG 2013 format.

This can be done by:
  1. Selecting Save As from the AutoCAD drop down menu
  2. Selecting the file type in the bottom right, and changing to DWG 2013
  3. Click Save
