The Create Sheet Images Generation Task will save images of multiple drawing sheets.
|(Name)||The unique name for this task.|
|Images Extension||The extension of the images (for example, .png).|
|Sheet Names||Pipe (|) delimited list of sheet names to export. Leave empty to export the current sheet or use an asterisk (*) to export all sheets.|
|Images Folder||The folder to save the images to (leave blank to use the folder the generated drawing is saved to).|
|Images Name||The file name of the images (leaving this blank will use the drawings name). Note the given value will be added as a suffix to the sheet name.|
|Overwrite||TRUE to overwrite the files if they exist, FALSE to keep any existing files.|
|Specification Id||The Id of the specification to associate the images with.|
|Zoom To Fit||TRUE to zoom to fit before creating the images.|
When this Generation task is added, some properties are static by default.
See How To: Change A Static Property To A Dynamic Property to enable rules to be built on these properties.
|Property Name||Example Rule||Example Result||Meaning|
|Images Extension||.png||.png||Will create .png image files of the sheets.
Valid image extensions for drawings include:
|Sheet Names||*||*||Will create image files of all sheets in the drawing.|
|Sheet Names||sheet1|sheet3||sheet1|sheet3||Will create image files of sheet1 and sheet3 only.|
|Images Folder||Will create the image files in the same folder as the drawing.|
|Images Folder||"C:\DrawingImages"||C:\DrawingImages||Will create the image files in the C:\DrawingImages folder.
The task will create the folder if it does not exist.
|Images Name||Will create images with the same name as the drawing, with the sheet name added as a suffix to each.
<Drawing Name> <DWSpecification> - <Sheet Name>.<Image Extension>
|Images Name||"Image"||Image||Will create images with the name "Image", with the sheet name added as a suffix to each.
Image - <Sheet Name>.<Image Extension>
|Overwrite||False||False||Will keep existing files if they already exist in the Images Folder.|
|Specification Id||Will associate all created images with the current specification.|
|Specification Id||22||22||Will associate all created images with the specification with the Id 22.
This is particularly useful if you have a separate project that batch creates drawing images that require associating to a specification.
