 ZW3D 20?? - Batch File Export

I would find a batch file translator really time saving, would anyone else?
This would be to export multiple part models via IGES, STEP or Parasolid.

I think you would need to highlight (CTRL / SHIFT for multiple selection) each part at the object manager level, then export all parts with the same "global" settings.

You could even have some defaults for what you want to export within each part depending on part type (Part or Sheet) And maybe an option within each part to alter the defaults during batch file exports.

Some of my customers require a full set of individual IGES and STEP files and currently its very time consuming to go into each part and export 2 file types for every part.

(For STEP, i could just export an assembly file but problem is my customers still saying all parts import into their system in 1 colour!!!!)

Yes - very useful.
Once upon a time - there where these little DAL's that did things like that.

Now I have asked before and will ask again - when will DAL/macros etc be available or able to be written again?

Cheers - Paul
