    export to .PLT?

    Ari Arponen

      How do I export my .slddrw files into .plt files? We just got a laser marker, which logo files are saved as *.plt files. And we need to make our own logo files, so do I need a addon or something?

          Just to inform, the PLT files are created with printer drivers. Most common looks like to be HPGL. So you print the drawing into file using PLT-plotter.

              Looks like Draftsight (free from Dassault) will save PLT files (its listed as a feature) although I don't use it myself. Inkscape (free) may also work, it does export PLT. You could export a DXF from SolidWorks to either application.

               

              Note, PLT format is all line segments, including curves.

               

              If you need arcs in the curved areas, you would need a different solution. There are some utilities that will save HPGL2, although I don't know of any that are free.
