BatchM8 Publisher's description
BatchM8 - Batch process drawings with Change, Plot or Purge.
BatchM8 has three primary functions: Change, Plot, Purge.
Batch Change: Computers are really good at replicating our mistakes, especially when drawings are created from other drawings. You can make changes to drawings where repetitive errors have occurred, whether you need to change some drawing notes, insert new or revised blocks, do an attribute data extraction, zoom limits or extents, create saved views, make layer changes, move, create, erase or copy objects. There are endless things that you can do with the CHANGE option.
Batch Plot: AutoCAD users have at one time or another had the need to plot out their drawings in one complete set (batch). Whether it's for a check plot set, a final submittal set, a released for production/construction set or just a revised drawing set. The Plot option in BatchM8 allows you to choose a method to batch plot, you can use the printer/plotter assigned to the layout or setup plot batches with user defined settings. Picking the Run button from the main dialog box will plot all the drawings selected. The PLOT option makes for quick and simple batch plotting with an interface similar to AutoCAD's own plot dialog interface. You also get the option to log plot information.
Batch Purge: To clean out drawings and remove all the junk that gets left behind in the life of a drawing is what the purge option allows you to do. As a user adds to and removes objects in a drawing, things get left behind. For example, when a user erases dimensions, it leaves an anonymously named block in the drawing, if you erase a regular block from the drawing it is still defined in the drawing database, and if these blocks had other internal data associated with them, like layers, text styles, etc. then all this useless data is taking up space. Although with the size of today's hard drives this isn't much of a problem in terms of taking up to much storage space. But if you'd like to store or share drawing files on a variety of mediums, purging out useless data becomes a necessity. BatchM8's PURGE option allows for a variety of items you can batch purge from your drawings.
