Saving files and tables


New member

I'm new to both solidworks works and this forum.

I have created a 3D file and a design table within it, the design table has over 500 different results. The problem is that I have to save three files, an IGES, STEP and STL for each design result which is taking me forever. Eventually I will have around 10,000 to process including around 100 designs so I really need a solution.

I have done a quick web search and seen that I may need a macro which I have no idea about and nothing seems all that clear.

So what I`m at least wanting is some method of saving three different files at once.
What I would ideally like is some way that I could tell solidworks to save three files from each of the 500 results in my design table.

I`m new to all of this so please explain it simply, if anyone can help it will be greatly appreciated.
I have solidworks 2015,
