Re: save multiple pdf files with multiple sheets per draft

You can use the delivered Batch.exe to convert to PDF.

 

C:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST10\Custom\Batch\Bin

 

Just make sure you set up your 'Save As Translated > PDF' options first and they should all then be converted the same.

 

Edit: I had this reply set up then got involved in some other stuff so missed the previos reply.

OK, so I was going to try that but found the batch.exe interface confusing. And I didn't know about needing to preset print settings in SE. So I set SE to "save as translated" to pdf, then in batch I set "convert to": adobe pdf.

Right?

Hi Bruce,

 

Yes, the interface is a bit confusing, as with most SE macro's Smiley Wink. If you set the Save As Translated > PDF Export Options in SE correctly beforehand (active sheet / all sheets etc.) it works fine:

Hello,

 

Thanks for all the reply's

I think the edge publisher is to expensive.

For the .dxf files i use Flatten'em. its free software form enginia and works great.

With the batch.exe i make the required .step files which is also great.

 

For now iam gonna use the batch.exe als for converting .pdf. 

I didnt know the option exist, but it works great!

The only thing is that we have a lot of unupdated drawings. So i first have to update them and save the drawings before i can use and save with the batch.exe.

 

But i have purchased the batch view updater and iam gonna try that program.

It was 65 dollar but i didnt install it yet.

 

Again, thanks for the replies!

I have the answere i needed Smiley Wink

I use the save as translated myself, be sure to check the otions button (next to "save") to be sure all sheets is selected, I've never had an issue using this process.

Hi @Craig_H

 

 

Yes this might be possible, but as far as I have understood the OP request every sheet of the draft should be saved into a single pdf file rather than all sheets into one pdf.

 

And this IMHO is not that easy without any additional software.

 

But maybe I'm wrong.

It isn't clear from the original OP as to what option he wants.

Is it a multi-sheet draft into one pdf, or multi-sheet draft into one pdf per sheet ?
