Hello,

you can use VBA in Windows or AppleScript in MacOS to open Illustrator and execute a javascript.

I have been looking for a script to help translate .dwg files into Illustrator friendly files. Your .dwg to .svg script may be truly helpful. Are you in a position to share the script or if not, where did you find the resources for it? Thanks.
