Is there any way to print a bunch of DrawingSheets from multiple part files at the same time? So that the printer recieves all the sheets to print as one print job instead of 30 or 40 separate print jobs?

BCT (http://www.bct-technology.com/) has some plotting utilities that (I think) can do what you want.

 

Otherwise, you have to write code to run thru all open parts (or current part and all components, recursively) and plot any drawings.  If component drawings are master model, then you'll have to figure out (from model filename) what the drafting file name is & open that.

 

Once you have the file open, plotting is pretty easy (try creating a journal, or searching the solutions database for examples)

you could export all drawingsheets to pdf and use the append option to create a single pdf.

Then print the pdf
