HPG is a vector image format created in a standard programming language called HPGL (Hewlett-Packard graphics language). Other extensions created in this language include PLT, HP2 and PL2. All are called "plotter files" and are created by drawing programs such as AutoCAD to be printed using a device specialized in vector graphics. An HPG file uses a line series of two-letter codes to render an image and can also include parameters.
DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) is a format associated with AutoCAD, a popular program used for computer-aided design by engineers, architects and other professionals in the field of building design and construction. The DXF format was developed in the early 1980s by Autodesk with the purpose of increasing the interoperability between AutoCAD and other CAD or advanced image design programs. It supports 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional drawings, and can be opened using a wide array of image processing programs.
The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter. Although it is fast, this software is extremely efficient in managing a wide range of conversions. As you will soon realize, reaConverter will help you avoid spending countless hours trying to figure out how to convert HPGs. But at the same time, it will allow you to apply a wide range of editing options.
Start reaConverter and load all the .hpg files you intend to convert into .dxf because, as opposed to most free online converters, reaConverter supports batch conversion. So you can save the time and energy you would lose with doing repetitive operations.
Select HPGs from a folder or by drag-and-dropping them directly into the reaConverter window.
Go to the Saving options tab and decide where you want to save new .dxf files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.
Then pick the DXF as output format. To help you do this, a series of buttons is conveniently placed at the bottom of the reaConverter window, so you can simply press on the one you need or click Plus button to add new options.
Then simply press the Start button and your conversion will begin in no time!Try Free Trial Version
