.BP2 File Extension
What is a BP2 file?
A BP2 file contains a batch plot list created by version 14 or earlier of Autodesk AutoCAD. It stores a list of one or more files to publish to a plotter or printer via AutoCAD. BP2 files include the name of each file or sheet to be published and its file type, the number of copies to be printed, and the location where the file or sheet is saved.
Autodesk AutoCAD is a computer-aided design CAD) application construction and design professionals utilize to create technical drawings. You can create various 2D and 3D drawings of industrial parts, buildings, vehicles, city streets, parks, furniture, and other items with AutoCAD.
Versions 1 to 14 of AutoCAD create BP2 (and .BPL files) files to allow you to save lists of files you commonly publish to printers or plotters. This helps you save time so you do not have to recreate the list of files each time you want to publish the same files or sheets.
NOTE: AutoCAD supported BP2 files up to version 14, then replaced BP2 files with .BP3 files.
How to open a BP2 file
You can open BP2 files with version 14 or earlier of Autodesk AutoCAD. Recent versions of AutoCAD do not support BP2 files.
