Batch/multi-export ?

I have a number of parts in an OnShape model that I would like to export as .STLs and am wondering if there's a way to do this as a batch process either through the UI or programmatically.
Just selecting all the parts and exporting as a single STL isn't going to work for me because I need to import these into the Gazebo robotics simulator. So I need the parts as individual STLs so I can assign joints, linkages, collision envelopes, etc. to each part.

Is there a "batch mode" in OnShape that I can do this with or do I have to go through my parts list and export each one by hand ?
(Which would be a pain, but okay...)

    @ jakeramsley, This is good and it will save time. why this option is limited to only STL and Parasolid.why not for other files format?
