Creating an HPGL or HPGL/2 plot file to use with Squiggle

Page 1 of 5



Though Squiggle 6 supports AutoCAD 2006 and earlier DWG, DXF files, it's sometimes necessary to generate HPGL or HPGL/2 plot files for proper use. Creating a plot file of your drawing results in the exact output you would get if you actually printed this output to your printing device and allows Squiggle to handle features it might not otherwise support (e.g. 3D perspectives using hidden lines).

  1. Open your main CAD application. In this example we used AutoCAD 2006, but you should be able to produce the same results with whatever CAD application you use.

  2. Open the CAD drawing you wish to convert to HPGL (see Figure 1).
