We have an old copy of EasyCad 97 with hundreds of drawings that needs to be
converted from PRT into Autocad format either DXF or DWG. Instead of having
to do a manual export for each drawing is there a batch conversion tool that
can do PRT to DXF/DWG??
.PRT is not a file format, it is just a common extension given to
printer files. The most likely file formats for them in CAD
environments are HPGL and PostScript. If they're PostScript, you could
look into using our commercial ps2vector software. It batch converts
PS to a number of file formats, including WMF which you can import
into AutoCAD as a vector graphic. Other output formats include HPGL
and CGM. We currently have DXF output in beta.

Sure .prt is a file format. CadKey used it up to CK19. Is the file format
the same as what Easycad used? I have no idea. My guess is that .prt is
just an extension that several cad programs have used (short for part).
Just waiting on our management to approve our move from CadKey to Acad.
Should be nice to get back to familiar territory but a lot of work getting
templates and such set up.
