Using scripts to automate printing & export for drawing issue

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone could advise on the feasibility of using vectorscripts to automate the process of issuing drawings.

What I would like to see is a single command that would take an A1 drawing and do the following to it:

- set the page size to A1 @ 100%

- save a plot as a postscript file

- set the page size to A3 @ 50%

- save a plot as a PDF file

- print a hardcopy

- export the drawing as a DWG file

I'm sure that to many people out there this is a reasonably familar (and hugely repetitive and time-consuming) task that frequently needs to be done when doing a large drawing issue.

Any assistance / advice would be hugely appreciated. Is this even possible with the built-in scripting language?
