    Hello guys,

    Is there a way where in I could e-transmit all dwg files in one go and would result to individual zip file?

    im pretty sure u'll have to do them seperatly mate, u can only modify the file structure within the zip file, not create individual zip files.
    You can get it jumpin' You can get it pumpin' You can get it chasing a cow. Matter o' fact, I got it now.

    It is possible with a short trick.
    Save the fallowing lisp file on your computer. Open AutoCAD, go to Tools>Load applications, locate the lisp and drag it in the startup suit. Close the window and go to File>Open. Select all the files you wish to process (use the CTRL and Shift keys for multiple selections) and press Open. The program should do the rest of the work.
    Remove the file from the startup suit!!!

    Code:
    (defun etra()
      (command "qsave")
      (command "-etransmit" "c"
           (strcat (getvar "dwgprefix")
               (substr (getvar "dwgname") 1 (- (strlen (getvar "dwgname")) 3))
               "ZIP")
           )
      )
    (etra)

    thanks fuccaro,

    I did what you said.
    I tried it but it only created .txt files not the zip files. And besides it only happen when you close the application (autocad) itself.

    It could be a problem with command parameters changed since 2002.
    Try to make an Etransmit using the keybord only (not clicking with the mouse). If it can be done, the Lisp can be changed accordingly.
    Enter in the command line _etransmit<enter> (see the underscore!). Follow the prompts. If it works as expected, press F2 to see the command line, copy and paste here the relevant lines. If AutoCAD 2006 works different as 2002, I will change the lisp.

    If _etransmit opens the dialog box, try with -etransmit (replace the underccore with dash)

    one thing about that lisp, do you need to set filedia to 0 at the beginning, and then back to 1 at the end ?
    otherwise a dialogue box appears
