Custom DXF Naming

Hey yall,

   Due to the way we export our drawings as DXFs to some CNC machines, I was wondering if there was a way to customize the way Inventor 2013 names its DXFs? The way it does it by default is, if I have a drawing with 5 sheets, it'll call it drawingname_sheet name_sheet number. For example:

 

drawing_main_1

drawing_side_2

 

and so on. Is there a way I can have it simplify and NOT include the sheet name and have it do:

 

drawing_1

drawing_2

 

etc?

 

MORE IMPORTANTLY, can I have it add leading 0's to the sheet number at the end? If I have a drawing file with over 10 sheets and I export a bunch of DXFs, I want everything to be in numerical order and not put #11 next to #1 in windows.

 

Thanks!
