Batch Printing using BOM for print order with report

Looking to see if anyone has a Batch program for using the BOM to control print order.

 

Use: once printed it can be put into a binder in the same order at the BOM.

 

Also if the tool could output a log file or report of what was printed and Rev levels of what was printed.

Hi,

 

I don't know of such a tool. To create one / order one you should be more accurate in your specification:

  • Under which conditions the tool shoul dbe run (i.e. from within an opened draft document and a BOM selected, or ...)
  • Should only DFTs be printed
  • How the DFTs of ASM/PAR/PSM documents could/should be found
  • Should printing be achieved in reverse order and should be printed to a single device only
  • etc, etc

 

Kind regards,

@jnewell has published a very good batch print tool in the past. As I never used it (I only saw the comments from satisfied users), I don't know if it still exists and/or whether it has become open source or not.

You may contact him to check, if it is possible to add your desired functionality to this tool.

Hi Jason,

 

Are you looking for source code, or a ready made 'shrink wrapped' solution?

I've talked with Jason, This is a little deeper type tool.
