The PLC extension is attached to images that represent the top silkscreen of an electronic board, most likely processed via Eagle software. PLC is part of the Gerber group of extensions, which functions as a de facto standard for storing images in the printed circuit board (PCB) industry. Other extensions included in this group are STC, STS and PLS. Each format contains data on a different segment or detail of an electronic board, including solder masks, copper layers etc.
PLT is a vector image format representing the HPGL standard language developed by Hewlett-Packard for printing line drawings. HPGL is supported by AutoCAD and other CAD software programs. PLT files represent plotter images that can be printed using a computer printer specialized in vector graphics (called "plotter"), which renders images as lines not as dots.
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 PLCs. But at the same time, it will allow you to apply a wide range of editing options.
reaConverter is quick to download, install and launch, and you don't need to be an IT specialist in order to understand in a few minutes how it operates.
Start reaConverter and load all the .plc files you intend to convert into .plt 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 PLCs 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 .plt files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.
Then pick the PLT 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
