Learning some CATIA VBA has been a big help to me. There’s been many instances where I’ve been able to take routine tasks and turn hours of work into minutes or seconds. I feel like I’ve only learned a little but that knowledge has carried over into a much greater understanding to other related areas of my work, such as a better understanding of how to work with our PLM system. Thanks!
