I rarely print anything of my own design. When I do, I use Tinkercad since it's like the PlaySchool of CAD, it's free and online.
Most of the things I print, I go to thingiverse.com and download the STL file. Sometimes I tweak it on Tinkercad.
Meshmixer is free and a good addition to your 3d printing toolbox

Beyond working well for these 3D printers, will any of these CAD programs save any of the files to a .dwg format? And/Or can any of these programs use a 2d .dwg file and convert into a file compatible with these printers?

Tinkercad is great for very simple things, I've used it a lot. It's when you start trying to design complex stuff that you have to go to a more professional CAD system.
