CATIA Macro - Select all Geometrical Sets apart from those with a Specific Name


New member
Hi all,

I want to write a Macro in CATIA V5 which automatically runs through every part in an Assembly and selects and hides all Geometrical Sets apart from those which include the text "Protection Set".

Unfortunately I have pretty much no experience with Macros, so don't know where to start.

Does anybody have any advice?

I've read that the best way to start a CATIA macro is to record a macro as you go through the steps manually. Then use the recorded macro as a reference.

I have no experience writing macros either, but there are a lot of smart, helpful people at eng-tips that can probably guide you through the process.
