If you need to print all the drawings for a project, you have to open each drawing one by one, and start printing by choosing the correct printer for each format manually. The calculation is simple: to print the set of drawings for a project comprising 200 documents, if it takes an average of 5 minutes per document, you save more than 16 hours of work!!
