Using Draftsight to generate a PDF for EPDM Workflow transition of a .DWG file

I have seen some posts regarding automatic PDF file creation of DWG files using AutoCAD.  I am wondering if Draftsight can be used with EPDM to automatically have a PDF created upon drawing approval, just like the canned task for SolidWorks functions.  We are early in our setup of an EPDM vault and I would like DWG drawing files and SLDDRW drawing files to go through the same automated eletronic sign-off and PDF creation process.  I really don't want users to follow another workflow for DWG files where they would have to generate a PDF manually and check in and create a reference to the DWG file. 

 

Has anyone had any success in what I am interested in doing?  It seems like this would be a natural fit for SolidWorks and EPDM eventually.
