I need help to create a scipt that could multiprint dwg into pdf. If you can do that without any new programs.

To print "normal" it looks like this.
" open "R:\A40-P001.DWG"
filedia 0 cmddia 0 layout S A3 plot N
..
..
filedia 1 cmddia 1 close "

Think you understand what I mean.

I believe you just wrote your script file my friend, I would only recommend,
like you see at the AutoCAD command line, each command or entry on it's own
line with no additional spaces (leave an empty line if you need an extra
. Taking your posted example, it would look like this:

open
"R:\A40-P001.DWG"
filedia
0
cmddia
0
layout
S
and so on

But when I use that script it only print it on paper and not into PDF.
Looking for a similar script that will print it to PDF and save the file on a given place.

Glad if you could solve my problem.

Did you change the prompt, when asked, to the PDF driver instead of the
default?

Walk through -PLOT command (note the dash) at the command line and see for
yourself.
