I was wondering if someone could help me write a script to automate a very tedious workflow.
I want to keep this simple. I work by organizing multiple 2D drawings inside a grid on one single Rhino file.
What I need to do is automate the printing of each of these drawings to separate PDFs files (one for each grid cell).
Not sure which is the best direction to take: To use “Layouts” or “Print Window”.
Using Layout offers no advantage to me for this specific workflow.

Each cell should be a different pdf. You can imagine doing this with the Ctrl + P and “moving” the “Print Window” form its center to the center of each cell and saving and naming each PDF gets quite tedious. (Not to mention the select > invert > hide combo to get each individual drawing alone).
Maybe to simplify things I could first print 1 pdf with all correct settings (given that Rhino remembers used settings) and then run the script.
Any insight would mean a tremendous help!
Thanks in advance,
