How to save multiple files to STEP or IGES at once

Question by mcluka

Hello,

I would like to know if it is possible to save multiple SOLIDWORKS or other CAD files to STEP/IGES format at once. That would be really handy when saving an assembly and all of its parts to a standard format.

Thanks for your feedback.

Look into the Solidworks Task Scheduler.
I do this all the time to save myself the conversion horror for multiple outputs.
It's unbelievable how much time it's saved me over the years.

Essentially Solidworks will run on it's own, opening and saving files with different extensions, schedule renderings, make documents, and so much more.

Check out this link for more info:http://blog.gxsc.com/graphics_systems_solidnot/2009/06/how-to-use-solidworks-task-scheduler-to-automatically-create-pdfs.html

Although this link is about scheduling PDF's, the same protocol exists for all scheduled items.

This should definitely help you out!

I think you can record a macro in SW. I have not done this but that is where I would start.
