Abstract

Many personal computer based drawing programs have the capability to create a Graphics Language (GL) file for IBM and Hewlett Packard type plotters. Nearly all do not have any file output that Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing (CADAM) programs can read. This invention describes how to take a GL file and create a CADAM file.
