Batch Printing


I was wondering if batch printing will be included in the final release of Rhino 6 or better access to the printing dialog via python?

Currently, I have a batch printing script that works ~90% of the time through command line access (-_Print). Problem is, if one of the drafters changed a setting in the print dialog box when not using my script and they inevitably forget to change it back, the script fails. They always seem to change a setting I do not have access to via _-Print (centered is a good example).

I understand if Rhino 6 is too far along in development for implementing batch printing but is it possible to provide better access to printing in the Rhino Common SDK? I’d love to write a much more robust batch printing script that can support multiple printers, pages sizes and orientations.

Same questions for Rhino7 : I see there are news in the layout management (vertical view with list of layouts). I see it is possible to print several layouts into one pdf.

Do you plan to allow printing from several 3dm files ? printing of several layouts into separate pdf files ?

Thanks !
