Is there a way in sw2010 to create a .plt file from a print?
Are you talking about instead of sending the plot to a printer you send it to a file?
In your print manager there should be a selection to allow you to do this.
As a follow up to Scott's post....
The default print to file extension in Solidworks is .prn. You can rename the extension to .plt if that is what you are set up for. We have been doing this successfully since we transitioned from ACAD to SWx.
