I am trying to batch plot a series of IDW drawings through task scheduler, the results is the wrong proportions and size, I am wondering if there is setup command in task scheduler that can be modified or if the proportions are wrong due to the IDW setup within Inventor itself i.e. page not setup correctly.

I´m having a problem with the Inventor 2012 Task Scheduler. I´ve done a couple of migration tasks over the last 2 months, actually quite some big tasks on our Vault Server.
Now I´m getting no more access to the application, it´s either showing a message that the server is busy and not responding or the application starts up and sits for a minute in the task bar and then opens up but still I can´t click any menus or create a report to control the tasks I've done earlier.
But I need to check the last couple of tasks to see which files have been successfully migrated and which are not. I know that I can view the logfiles manually but that still leaves me with no more tasks that I need to run to fix our database and Inventor files.
Let the application run with administrator rights doesn't work either. What else could be done to get the task scheduler back up running?
I want to automate the check in of design files to Vault on each PC, prior to running workspace sync (Vault) which does have command line support.
I know you can schedule tasks within the Inventor Task scheduler, but has task scheduled the Inventor Task Scheduler? I suppose in theory you could schedule the launch of Inventor Task scheduler via the Windows one? or is there any need? If the Inventor Task scheduler isn't running, but a task has been scheduled, will it execute the program itself?
I am trying to use Task Scheduler to migrate all my .ipt files from 2010 to 2011. When I do it however it gives me the error , "cannot create Task" in a little pop up message box. It does this will types of task , i.e. I can not create any tasks ever.
It has done this a few times on me with different files. I am trying to migrate our library of parts. It will get to 76% complete and locks up. showing no memory in use and not building any memory in the task manger process. I set the options to skip unresolved and to not purge old versions. I have to kill the process and then stop the task to close it. I am having more trouble with 2013 in the first couple months than I did with all of 2012. too late to turn back now.
I am using task scheduler to import about 20 Step files. I have feature recognition installed which of is a bit of a problem with Task Scheduler. Besides uninstalling, is there a way to suppress the dialog box that comes up on import of a step file.
I do not really want to watch my 20 step files being imported.
I just created and ran a migrate task using the Autodesk Task Scheduler. I selected several folders and migrated the files from Vault. When the task completed, there were several files that failed. The majority of them had "---Failed at Child" in the log.
Just to see what the problem was, I did a get latest on several of these that failed and then opened them in Inventor. They all opened just fine without any errors at all.
I am also seeing some entries like "xyz.ipt in 12345.iam -- File does not exist. When I opened the iam after the task was complete, there was no errors and it found the xyz.ipt file.
Question is, why does the task scheduler report these in the log, when there is nothing wrong with the files?
I have installed Inventor 2013 on a machine just so that I can use this machine to migrate my files using the Autodesk Task Scheduler. I started the TS, then Create Task>Migrate Files task. I selected my "Vault" project and get a message that says "Vault Projects not supported".
I noticed that in the Migrate Files dialog, there is not a box at the top that says "Migrate from Vault".
This is installed on "Windows Server Standard x64" OS.
I tried a repair install and Reinstall on the Inventor 2013 installation. Problem still persists.
I am looking to batch convert my IDWs to AutoCad DWGs without having to go through and manually open each file and save as etc. Right now I am using the export files task to do this. I have saved an *.ini file with all the settings I want and successfully create the task. After running the task it fails to convert all the files giving me an error message that says "File has unresolved references". This shouldn't be the case though because the IDW's open and reference the part/assembly files fine.

I have set up one computer to run the Task Scheduler to get the latest versions of my Library files (this is done with mutliple tasks thoughout the day). Is there a way to copy the scheduled tasked set up on this computer to other computers without manually setting up each machine.
We are trying to get task scheduler to automatically download certain files from the Vault. Templates and Styles. The templates work great, but there is no way to specify any filetypes other than Inventor filetypes. Am I missing something? Is there a way to specify non-inventor filetypes?
I just installed 2012 with the Inventor pro suite. when I tried to open multiple dwg's it locked up on certain dwg's and I got the error " no cavas click on new canvas". I read an existing post that said
"I went into the CUI, current workspace, removed the Sketchbook Designer from showing in the Ribbon"
I could not find this in my cui current workspace and is this the best solution?

Is there a possibility to distribute a batch task between several computers? For example rendering raw files into jpgs and applying actions.
On bigger events it would greatly reduce the waiting time for the processed files. Instead of one computer working for two hours, maybe two machines could do it in an hour?
Of course I can split the files and start two separate batch tasks on separate computers but a task server would make the workflow easier. 3D and video software have a lot of options for distributed rendering..
We are still on Revit 2012 and from my understanding, there were some improvements in the way Revit exports to CAD files. I'm sure most of you would agree that the export to AutoCAD feature is still a long way off. I wanted some opinions on my thoughts on how to minimize some of the errors that I recieve when I open the exported CAD files.
My problems really pertain to linetypes and hatch patterns. If I do not map any of the patterns to a standard AutoCAD linetype or hatch pattern file, then I get an error reading pattern message if I want to check out the pattern in AutoCAD. I am very inclined to wipeout all of the standard fill patterns and linestyles in Revit and make new ones based on the standard AutoCAD lines and hatches. Does this seem reasonable?
I made an attempt at drawing out what I'm trying to say in MSPaint. At my office we use an HP Designjet 800ps to plot our drawings, most everyone uses AutoCAD 2010-2011 and I use AutoCAD LT 2010. All of our drawings are ANSI C size (17"x22") and we use paper rolls that are 24" wide x 150' long. For some reason our plotter always prints our drawings sideways causing us (read 'me, the assistant') to have to trim the excess off of every single print. Not only is this time consuming but it is a huge waste of paper! If I can get it to rotate we will get 19 MORE plots out of every roll of paper!!!
I was wondering if there is some way to change settings somewhere so that our drawings are printed the correct way, saving me lots of time and saving our company lots of paper? Is it normal to plot this way?
how do i edit a series of pictures in which i want the same affect applied to each picture in the series? the answer that was given was: apply all the affects you want to your picture and record that as a batch action and use that action to apply to the remaining series.
a powerpoint presentation, for a software package that I have designed, and written, for use with AutoDesk Inventor.Could I ask you if you could spare just 2 minutes of your time to look at the presentation, so that I can gauge your impressions of the software, and the power point presentation itself.
The powerpoint presentation will give you a brief description of the software's capabilities
We just started in 2014 last week. When we batch plot to PDF using the DWG to PDF driver we get multi-page files no matter which is selected in the Publish Options. Any way to allow single sheet PDF creation?
Here are my current steps for getting prints to shop floor;
1. download a list of drawings required from as/400 into Excel. 2. saveas .csv file 3. print mfg labels using label program reading .csv file 4. using labels, open .dwg from ACAD one at a time and print ea 5. apply labels to prints 6. give to mfg
I want to do this;
1. download a list of drawings required from as/400 into Excel 2. run macro to concanteate file location, name and .dwg to new column 3. run macro to print each drawing either from Excel or Acad - not sure which is better;
- Each drawing will have all label data incorporated in the drawing - currently nothing is in the drawing for label data, I'll need to create it. - should I insert a block that updates with the excel row data
4. give to mfg
My first goal is to be able to batch print with the same list that I use to create the labels, then I'll focus on getting the label data incorporated on the drawing.
