Sheet Metal to .dxf - Batch conversion

Hi Everyone!

   Just looking around for a solution before I dive into macro-land.  SolidWorks Task scheduler is able to save drawing files as .dxf, and that's great!  I'd like to save my sheet metal parts directly to .dxf in a batch, to be sent to my fab shop.  As far as I know, I have to open each file, then do a 'Save As .dxf' and close the file.  I checked SW2009 and SW2010 for a Sheet Metal batch save tool and can't find it.


  I'm sure I'm not the first one who could use this functionality.

  What are most of you doing now when you have 100+ sheet metal parts to save as .dxf files for your shop?

  I did see Philip Thomas' macro, but that is described for use with weldment part types.  I will review it, but I'd like to know what you guys do.
