I am trying to create a script to batch export drawings as PDF files, and I’ve hit a wall. Any suggestions would be really helpful.
My goal is to automate exporting of 100+ files. I’ve looked at posts here (and a few other posts all day), but found only solutions with Layouts, using the GetPageViews() method.
page = sc.doc.Views.GetPageViews()
Here are my questions:
Is there a way to automatically arrange the Layout’s Detail Window (is that how I should call it?) to cover my modelspace, similar to Set Window feature in a Print Command?
I’ve been trying to use the _-Print command to set up all necessary settings. But, I end up with a pop-up window, that requires me to Manually enter the FileName as well as the location. Although, I see the prompt for entering a filename in the console, I can’t get it to work. Is it possible to override the pop-up box?
def exportPDF(fileName): # A4 Portrait a4x = "210" a4y = "297" separator = "\\" if platform.system() == "Darwin": separator = "/" # Get current file directory activeDocPath = str(os.path.dirname(os.path.realpath(Rhino.RhinoDoc.ActiveDoc.Path))) # Rhino _Macro Rhino.RhinoApp.RunScript("_-Print Setup Destination PageSize _Enter" + a4x + " " + a4y + " Enter View ViewportArea Window " + a4x + "," + a4y + " 0,0 _Enter _Enter Go _Enter" , True) # Trying to get this work # Rhino.RhinoApp.RunScript("_-Print Setup Destination PageSize _Enter" + a4x + " " + a4y + " Enter View ViewportArea Window " + a4x + "," + a4y + " 0,0 _Enter _Enter Go _Enter" + activeDocPath + separator + fileName + ".pdf", True) return
