We have a requirement to convert/print large number of MicroStation/J files to PDF.
These are pipeline isometrics extracted from PDS 3D Model.
We can print one file at a time to PDF format.
However we do not know how to do batch print to PDF.
What software are using to open these Microstation J files?

Hexagon (Intergraph) PDS is used to extract pipeline isometric files from PDS 3D Models. For PDS, MicroStation/J is a prerequisite. These files are MicroStation/J files, but have extensions .i01, .i02, .i03.....so on and so forth. If a line is split into 3 sheets, then filenames will be LineName.i01, LineName.i02 and LineName.i03. Sometimes we have 30 files for a line (.i30). We have to batch convert these into PDF format.
Are you actually using MicroStation/J?I don't recall if that version even had batch plotting - it might not.
I do believe it had MicroStation BASIC, so you could possibly write a program that could open and print files for you.
That is a very old version, and it lacked a lot of the more modern capabilities.

As Intergraph and then Hexagon developed PDS they chose to ignore the advances in MicroStation over the years. They didn't move to MicroStation V8, let alone MicroStation CONNECT. PDS users are stuck in an ancient version of MicroStation/J that most of us have forgotten.

Yes, MicroStation/J includes MicroStation BASIC. The 'J' stands for the Java programming language, which came and went with that version of MicroStation.
