What is Anvil HPGL . . ?

Anvil HPGL is a windows program for the conversion of ANVIL Express®, ANVIL-5000®, and now ANVIL-1000® parts to HPGL, HPGL2, IGES, DXF, EPS (Encapsulated PostScript), Interleaf, TIFF/G4,  JPEG, SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), or PDF (Adobe PDF). It uses a subset of ANVIL to process parts (.GEN, .PRT, .AXP, .DRW) in a background process.

If you have hundreds or thousands of ANVIL part files (.PRT, .GEN, or .DRW) to convert to graphics formats, CAD formats, or plot. Then ANVIL HPGL is your solution! It lets you automate the conversion and plotting process, producing HPGL, HPGL/2, IGES, DXF, EPS, InterLeaf, TIFF/G4, JPEG, SVG, or PDF files from your ANVIL part files.

Anvil HPGL Features:
