Batch Save Copy As PDF with a Custom Parameter Filename

510 Views, 2 Replies

Hi All,

 

I urgently need the following:

An application that will let me choose a group of Drawing files (.idw) and perform "Save Copy As" to a PDF format on them. The Filename of each Drawing should be extracted from a custom Parameter I embeded in the IDW file.

 

I know I can use the Task Manager with a virtual PDF Printer to create these files, but then the PDF Filename will equal the IDW Filename, and I want it to be derived from the custom parameter I prepared inside the drawings.

 

Please advise.

 

Regards,

Yoni

Hi,

 

in one of the blogpots of From the Trenches with Autodesk Inventor there is a post where you can find the code to export your drawings to a pdf with information like revnumber from your file. This for a start; the batching is also something I like to know.

Thanks Danny,

 

Rule seems OK.

The trick is: How do I run it over a group of existing IDW files without having to open each file manually?
