Is there any way to convert multiple solidworks drawings in to pdf format at once only.
Is there any macro available for this.
There are lot of macros available on this forum and you can modify them as required.
Some of them are:
Rebuild & saveas PDF
Save As PDF 1.22
SaveAsPDF with Folder Selection
You may also use SW Task Scheduler or BatchProcess
Thanks for the macros.
To run these macro, I have to open each drawing and then need to run the macro. Instead of this I dont want to open drawing file for each drawing, macro can read the drawings folder and convert all the drawings under the specified folder and convert it in to pdf.
I know this can be done in batch process, but i have to purchase the license copy of it. In SW task scheduler it takes time to convert the file. In my case, mostly I require instant conversion.
Do we have other macro which fulfill my requirements?
This macro Rebuild & saveas PDF works as you need. You just need to specify the the folder location and it will convert all the drawing in that folder to PDF
Use SW Task Scheiduler
Not able to download the macro. Can you please post the link or the macro directly?

I think people shoudl be aware of a bug that I ran across. By using the SW Save As PDF, we had some PDF files that were missing stuff. The result was this:
SPR 522646 (Text is missing from block on layers when the drawing is saved out as a pdf file. Block text appears white in view only mode) So basically, the stuff was there but was white on white. The fix was either to move all blocks to layer None or use another PDF program - we use PDFCreator.
Thanks for putting it Wayne. I'm sure we can batch print PDF using the PDF printer via SolidWorks.
There is a pdf printer available on net called Cutepdf (Just google it.) Download and install it on your pc. Using that while giving print select cute pdf printer instead of your local printer which will convert your any file in to PDF format.
For batch conversion go to Solidworks Just go to
Solidworks Task Scheduler > Print files > add the files which you want to convert in to PDF > go to option > select Cute pdf printer > ok > Finish...
Hope this will help you
I used to use CutePDF but then found another program called DoPDF-7. It's a printer based PDF creator. Works great for me. I also use Foxit Reader instead of Adobe. Adobe is such a pig and takes too long to load.
Well, to be honest, I am not so familiar with solidworks drawings, and which kind of file are they? Jpeg, png, bmp or other image formats? I believe that no matter which kind of image format the solidworks drawings are, you can convert them into pdf document just by using a mature and comprehensive document image converter that enables to convert image to pdf or in the vice versa pdf to image file.
Use SolidWorks Task Scheduler!
I agree with ED, use the Task Scheduler.
