batch export/import 3ds?

is it possible to import a bunch of 3ds files at once into blender (not just one at a time)?..and if anywone knows does there exist a batch exporter of 3ds files from acad?

for example, rather and highlight and export a chunk at a time, maybe a plugin that would automatically generate a bunch of 3ds files that overall makeup your model (both for acad and blender)
