Solutions for Batch Exporting

Hi all,

I'm trying to find a method for batch exporting drawings into PDFs and sheet metal parts into DXFs from OnShape, when you have large released assemblies with parts and drawings in multiple documents, and potentially multiple configurations.  Whether this be a 3rd party program, OnShape app, or something native.

Currently I have to create a large release package and export the PDFs one-by-one from that release package, Onshape did recently add a feature to batch export drawings from the tab manager; however, when you do that it cannot use your naming scheme correctly.  I have to choose whether to rename 100+ PDFs by hand in File Explorer (and potentially make a mistake) or export them one by one from the release package.

It's the same issue with DXFs except these have to be done at the part studio level grabbing the sheet metal model.

It's just an exceedingly manual process that takes hours and it allows for a lot of mistakes to be made during the process.

I'm wondering what everyone else uses as a solution to this, if there's a 3rd party program or software that people have found success with or just a different method.
