Q: I have a lot of plt files, how can I convert plt file to dwg file in ZWCAD, is there any plt to dwg converter for free? Or is there any function from autocad/ zwcad for plt to dwg conversion?

A: First of all, you need to make sure that your plt files were plotted with HPGL Standard, i.e. they were plotted by Generic SHPGL plotter or Generic LHPGL plotter in AutoCAD. And then you can use PLT2DWG function to convert the PLT files to DWG drawings.

Amethyst PLT-2-DWG is a powerful Windows program that enables you to quickly and easily
batch convert PLT plotter files (HPGL) to AutoCAD DWG and DXF. All versions of AutoCAD from 9 to 2011 are supported.
The program is stand-alone, and AutoCAD is not required.





HPGL is Hewlett-Packard's standardized Graphics Language.
It is the primary printer control language used by Hewlett-Packard plotters,
and later became a standard for almost all plotters. Typical HPGL files start with a
few setup commands, followed by a long string of graphics commands.

You can use ZWCAD+ to convert plt file to dwg file, or convert HPGL to dwg file, find the plt-to-dwg feature from the ribbon menu, go to Express tab as following screenshot, or directly input command plt2dwg to run this function.
