save as multiple file types at once

In the manufacturing environment I am constantly saving drawings as dxf files for use with burn tables to produce sheet metal parts. The drawings are always current, but if the discipline isn't there, the dxf files can become outdated. Especially if a larger number of parts are affected by any given change to a model. I still want to have to open and re-save the drawings as corrected, or "up to date". Is it possible to have solidworks "save as" multiple file types automatically to keep dxf files (or any other for that matter) as up to date as the SW drawing? The file location of the "other type" could be the same as the SW drawing. It would be nice to be able to specify a specific path for each file type. For example, a specific directory containing dxf files or pdf files.
