Good morning All,
Let me start off by saying that I know this topic has been visited numerous times. I've been using #TASK for years for the simple tasks of batch converting either standard part .sldprt files to .dxf or sheet metal flat patterns to .dxf. I do alot of individual parts where they need to be converted to .dxf for import into our burning machines. Now that Central Innovations is charging a fee of $/yr, I'm not sure if there is an alternative that is free such as a macro out there. I've tried many macros that didn't seem to work yesterday. I need mainly for converting both sheet metal flat patterns to dxf as well as standard non-sheet metal .sldprt's. Solidworks Scheduler is nice but from what I can see (I'm on SW2015 still), the option to batch convert to .dxf is only available for drawings, NOT parts. I like macros and use them often but perhaps i'm not seeing the one that works for this task. Any help would be appreciated. I just modeled 34 parts yesterday and now have to convert all the .sldprt's to .dxf and opening and converting each one to .dxf is monotonous. With #TASK, I simply copied all the .sldprt's into an assigned folder (only to assure the originals didn't get messed up) and then opened the software and batch converted all of them within a matter of less than a minute. It would open each file and export the assigned 2D face to a .dxf file then close the file and open the next part, it worked great. Now that v1.3 is done, is there something else that I can use in lieu of buying the v2.0? Thanks in advance.
