PLT Import for AutoCAD 1.0
PLT Import for AutoCAD
PLT Import for AutoCAD is a HPGL Plot (.plt) file import plug-in for AutoCAD®. This plug-in gives AutoCAD the ability to import geometric data from ASCII and Binary PLT files.
PLT Import for AutoCAD reads pen movement data stored PLT files and imports it into AutoCAD. A HPGL PLT file is comprised of a set of instructions related to pen movements of HPGL plotters. PLT Import for AutoCAD reads these pen movement instructions and creates curve objects in the active AutoCAD drawing. PLT Import for AutoCAD supports the following HP plotters:
Hewlett-Packard Draftmaster 1 (7595A)
Hewlett-Packard Draftmaster 2 (7596A)
Hewlett-Packard Draftpro (7570A)
Hewlett-Packard Draftpro-DXL (7575A)
Hewlett-Packard Draftpro-EXL (7576A)
PLT Import for AutoCAD is very easy to use. Once installed, it must be loaded into the AutoCAD environment. There are simple instructions for this in the ReadMe file. Once loaded it adds new commands to AutoCAD's existing commands and a new submenu called "PLTImport" to the AutoCAD menu containing these newly added commands.
