Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Automation with SOLIDWORKS Task Scheduler, part of SOLIDWORKS 2013-2017: Sheet Metal Design.
The Task Scheduler is awesome, and it can do a lot of work for you.…If you've never seen it before, it's going to be a treat.…Text Scheduler is not actually part of SolidWorks itself.…It's a SolidWorks add-on program that can be launched independently.…You're going to Task Scheduler in the same installed directory that you had installed…SolidWorks in. That's normally a secondary application.…Once you get it fired up, let's go ahead and take a look at some of the things it…can do. So over here on the left, you can see you…can convert files, dissect files, update files, print files, import, export, all…kinds of other great things you can do down here.…
The ones that I use the most are export files or print files.…And printing doesn't seem like that big of a task.…But what if you've worked on a design? You've got a hundred drawings you need to…print out. And you like to have them all print out…automatically without having to open each one.…And click on print. You can load it up in the Task Scheduler.…Have it print 'em out. And when you come back, they're all ready…
