You can view PLT or AutoCAD Plotter Document with the Autodesk AutoCAD 2013 and ArtCut applications only, which is a nuisance to many people. If you need to view PLT files right away without paying hunderds of dollars for Autodesk AutoCAD or ArtCut, you should convert PTL to JPEG, the most popular image format. JPEG files can be viewed with any standard picture viewing software without any problems, so you won't need to spend money on specialized programs.
To convert PTL drawings to JPEG format, you should use a batch PLT converter. You can either take advantage of free online converters, if quality is not crucial, or check out Total CAD Converter from CoolUtils.
