Feature Overview

Reintroduce the ability to Batch process reading (opening) DWG? or DXF? files and writing (saving) PowerCADD to DWG or DXF.

Feature Description:

The old PowerDRAW translator, a stand alone application, had the ability to batch process files. We'd like to see that feature integrated into the PowerDWG Translator External. Key elements would include:

  1. The ability to open (read) multiple DWG or DXF files by pointing the translator to a folder full of files
  2. The ability to save (write) multiple PowerCADD files to DWG or DXF by pointing the translator to a folder full of files
  3. The ability to save presets of translator settings that could be applied to reading or writing DXF or DWG files
  4. The presets noted in (3) would include the ability to link to the Line Weight to Color or Color to Line Weight settings and other existing optional translation settings

Optionally, we'd also like to see the translator let us save the preset settings a droplet. Dropping a folder full of files onto the droplet would tell PowerCADD to automatically process the files (either read or write) with the saved settings.

Carried over to PowerCADD 9 Wish List

Sadly this didn't make it into PowerCADD 8.0 released March 2008. We can always hope for a rolling update to PowerCADD v8, but until then we've moved this to the PowerCADD v9 wish list section. The poll is still open so cast your vote or post a comment (must be registered and logged into vote and post comments)
