A couple of suggestions. You can select multiple line numbers to generate at once. I'm pretty sure once you have the PCF files, it uses all your cpu cores to generate isos. So, in that sense it is multi-threaded.
Also, there is a command line interface to the isometric engine. It's not that difficult to write a script in your favorite scripting language that will poll a folder for PCF files and then kick off generating the isos using the command line interface. This might also make it more efficient for you to export PCFs and not wait for the isos to be produced.
At the moment it does batch operations and not single piece flow, the part of the whole 'generate iso' that takes the longest is producing the PCF files (takes about minute to produce a single PCF). Only after all the PCF files have been generated does the process automatically start to produce the ISO's (.dwgs and spread sheets for the BOM and Weld List) and I can confirm that this process is multi threaded (After the PCF's have been generated).
If we use a script to start generating the ISO's from the PCF files, will they appear in the "Isometric DWG" tab in the project manager?
Couple of suggestions (Apologies if they have been brought up already)
Looking forward to seeing what's available in the future.
