You should contact your site administrator who can contact your sales rep.
Using the ProjectPoint API, it is possible to write a VB application that
will upload files to a Buzzsaw site using an automated process. Using the
batch plot capability of AutoCAD, you should be able to generate the DWF
files en masse. All that would be left to do is connect the dots.

The creating dwf's in batch isnt a problem, its adding batch ploting in
buzzsaw one the dwf's are uploaded to buzzsaw. The way i do it now, is that
i have to right click once i'm in the view mode for the dwf in buzzsaw. The
click "print", which allows me to select my printer, size, and scale. Theres
no other way of getting the file to come right. If you select all of them
from the file tree, then click on print, you wont get the options of
printing that you do in volo view (select my printer, size, and scale). Its
just a big mess... I'm sure i;m not the only one who has encountered this
problem.

I agree with Jorge - some of my customers running Buzzsaw have mentioned the ability of batch printing as a useful addition. I know that there will be problems with multiple pages within DWF files, scale, size etc - but it must be possible to overcome this in some way.

We are currently working on ways to improve
batch-plotting of multiple DWFs. In the meantime, we recommend utilizing
the new DWF6 format that allows creation of multi-page files, as the entire set
can then be plotted using Volo View 3 or the free Autodesk Express Viewer. 
We also encourage your suggestions!

 

Thanks,
