Sketch > 3D Drawings

To apply sketch effects to 3D drawings, they first need to be saved as HPGL or HPGL/2 plot files (PLT).

To do this,

  • Using your CAD program, install an HPGL printer, such as HP DesignJet 750C.

  • Using your CAD program, print the drawing to file, selecting hidden line removal. This will produce a PLT file. The image will be in 2D with all hidden lines removed.

  • Open the PLT file in CADsketch. The file will be converted to DWG/ DXF for processing.

  • Create the sketched effects in the normal manner.
