Is there an add-in or third-party program that can take a text file containing a list of drawing file paths and batch plot them? The programs that I've found produce a blank printout when referencing a drawing that is within the Workgroup PDM Vault. I understand that making use of files inside the vault without going through Workgroup PDM is not possible, but there must be some way to batch plot within the vault. I really can't use task scheduler, because I need to import the drawing list from a text file rather than manually browse and select drawings.
I have to imagine that most manufacturing companies out there have this same need. The ERP system outputs a list of drawings needed for manufacturing orders to a text file, and this file is processed through batch plotting software to produce prints for shop packets. Is there a way to do this for files that are in Workgroup PDM's vault?
