Batch Command 10
CAD Batch Command
is a valuable extension to our range of CAD products.|
CAD Batch Command enables two main categories of operation:
1. Batch printing and conversion of CAD drawings
via the command line
CAD Batch Command 10 converts CAD
drawings to formats such as BMP, JPG, PDF, and TIFF, or similarly
prints CAD drawings, with the ability to convert or print thousands
of drawings in a single operation.
Open drawings in a
CAD Viewer window via a simple call or link
may be loaded into the software's CAD Viewer window, at a specified view,
or zoom location. The software's viewer window may be
opened using a file link (e.g. from a speadsheet), or via a simple call
from your own application or third party application (e.g.
database or software for example, to load and view the drawing.)
After the drawing is loaded the user has access to all the standard
CAD Viewer 10 functionality, such as zoom,
pan, print, save, etc.
|The diagram below
shows an example call to zoom to a pre-defined
location on the drawing (e.g. from a database or other application). Open the drawing
‘lift_basement01.dwg’ and center the zoom at coordinates 12,12, with a
window height of 4: bc10.exe C:\diagrams\lift_basement01.dwg /Z=12,12,4
CAD Batch Command
- Load, Zoom, Print, Save, and Convert drawings from the Command Line
- Perform automated operations with no user interaction
- Load and print drawings / batch print automatically with no limit on the number of drawings to be printed

- Load drawings with all Layers turned on with the choice of subsequent
drawings to be either loaded normally or with all the Layers turned on.
- CAD Viewer can be invoked via command line in MS-DOS window or via Start|Run.
Batch files allow users to create lists of commands to
run in sequence once the batch file has been executed.
Simple batch files do not require any special programming
skills and can usually be done with just a basic knowledge
of DOS commands.
