what is a .plt file?

The PLT file extension is a vector-based plotter file developed by Autodesk, Inc. to contain plotting details from a certain CAD or computer-aided design file. CAD, or Computer-Aided Design, is defined as drafting and designing with the assistance of a software specifically developed for creating technical drawings. In simpler terms, plotting basically means the act of printing the design created through the CAD software. Plotter files and the plotting details that they contain are vital aspects in any production of plans using a CAD software since technical drawings require an optimum level of preciseness and accuracy. Users may view and handle PLT files directly through its primary program which is Autodesk’s AutoCAD. Other CAD and graphics software can also be used to manage such files specifically IMSI’ TurboCAD and CorelDRAW Graphics Suite. PLT files may also be converted to other file formats to enable opening and managing for other programs.

The Boolean operations to these 3D objects includes subtraction, union and intersection. 2D and 3D objects can also be operated by moving, rotating, mirroring etc. Viewing of these objects include multiple viewport generate, the use of the User Coordinate System (UCS) and viewing direction selection. Other electric draft functions are Dimensioning and Tolerancing, 3D images, Organization of objects and Plotting. The AutoCAD drawing exchange format uses a DXF File format, and for accessing AutoCAD database, functions of AutoLISP, ADS and API are used. AutoCAD uses a module to read and output data of graphics on a data file. this module is the IGES Interface. IGES format (ISO and ANSI) is used for communication of graphics data among several CAD and CAM systems.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .plt files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .plt. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
