I was never able to find any way to do this. I work with a designer using 3DHA ver. 3 and was converting the .PL1 files to .DXF, then using AutoCAD for the finished drawings. After much research, we decided to switch to Chief Architect, the software that version 3 was based on and is compatible with. Unfortunately, starting with version 4, Broderbund hired different companies to continue development of 3DHA and did not require file compatibility. So, your only choice for saving your old drawings is to use Chief Architect, or convert them to .dxf files and use any drawing package capable of .dxf import. Chief is expensive, but if you're doing this work commercially, it's well worth the price and learning curve.
