PLT2DWG (Express Tool)

Imports legacy HPGL files into the current drawing, retaining all colors.

Plot output (PLT) files can be created in the legacy HPGL (Hewlett Packard Graphics Language) vector format. You can use PLT2DWG to import the HPGL data into an AutoCAD drawing:

Command: PLT2DWG
Enter the plot file <Drawing>: Specify the file name or enter ~ to display the File dialog box

The HPGL/2 format, the successor to HPGL, is device-dependent and not supported by PLT2DWG.

Note: PLT2DWG does not support Draftpro DXL and Draftpro EXL which are listed as options 6 and 7 in the Supported Models section under the Hewlett-Packard (HP-GL) ADI 4.2 - by Autodesk, Inc. device driver. Also, the default system printer and the HPGL/2 printer are not supported.
