Boeing AH-64 Apache with Catia V5

Assalamualaikum wbt.

Helicopter is an air transport that have a main rotor blade to create lift, and a tail rotor to counter its torque. A helicopter is also an air transport that only need a space of its size to take-off as its capability of Vertical Take Off. With this capability, its have its advantage comparing to fixed wing that need space for its runway.

But in other context, designing a helicopter in a software is quit challenging. Its need passion to complete the helicopter from its cockpit to the tail. And, today i have found this video link in the youtube created by Alberto Cerrudo with his Boeing AH-64 Apache.

I have seen quit a lot of fized wing airplane reverse engineering a fixed wing, as i also done it with my Boeing, but this is very different. To reverse engineering a helicopter in a software/ catia is a good effort and differs from other. And yes, to own a helicopter, you will need a very big amount of cash, but in term of designing and have it in your computer, and designing on your own is quit a satisfying experiences.

Congrats to the Alberto for his effort on designing Boeing AH-64 Apache.

Assalamualaikum and hi all,

A new task to  redesign the outer cockpit of MIG 29. Here i provide some explanation from wikpedia about mig 29. And some image showing the fuselage - cockpit of this MIg 29. Anybody who need this raw file, catia file, can request to me with some fee to pay royalty to my department and also to few others. Thanks.

The Mikoyan MiG-29 (RussianМикоян МиГ-29NATO reporting name: "Fulcrum") is a jet fighter aircraftdesigned in the Soviet Union. Developed by the Mikoyan design bureau as an air superiority fighter during the 1970s, the MiG-29, along with the larger Sukhoi Su-27, was developed to counter new American fighters such as the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle, and the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon.[6] The MiG-29 entered service with the Soviet Air Force in 1983.

Reverse Engineering of human part replacement parts. (on your knee)

Assalamualaikum and good day everyone.

Reverse engineering, 3d printing, additive engineering is now getting more popular then few years before. This is because everyone is now going so fast and need decision to be more faster than ever. Here i place some sample on about Reverse Engineering of a replacement part that can be installed to our knee. This is not 100% accurate (and yet not less than 80 %)> Done it with catia v5 Reverse Engineering. 

To do this you need to have scanned data, that means cloud of points will be your starting lane. Then, with those cloud of points you will need to do meshing, thats why colours are in brown as in the picture below.
Next, with Quick Surface Reconstruction workbench, we need to locate the basic surface first to ease the surfacing. Then, with other advance icon in the workbench, complicated surfaces is then work to complete the design as below.

For those which are newbie to this, as we can see below the colour of yellow and brown are overlapping each other. That what we need as a visual inspection, we know that our surfacing is almost the same with the scanned surfaces.

Our reader: Krishna passed the Specialist Exam for CATIA


Congratulations to Our blog reader, Krishna as he passed his CATIA Specialist Exam last week. Hopefully there will be many more from us, CATIA user, that will sit and pass this exam in the future.

Anyway, here is his comments on one of my post.

Again, congrats and thanks for your credit to me :)


Hi Guys day before yesterday i have done the Catia Surface Design specialist (R18) exam and I am passed the exam . Firstly , i would like to pass my thanks to Mr . Zihad mahmud and for his exam experience really helped me to crack down the exam in 20 Days time .

For me it was difficult to find the right material earlier to prepare for the exam . I have given a lot research on material , finally god helped me through CATIA Online Documentation of R18 and installed CATIA V5 R18 .

You are right , the questions are tricky but not tough . From my experience while picking the answers , one should not pick in the first instance instead should go for an extra thought . Because it appears for each question more than one answers would be the obvious choices .

I have faced a variety of questions . Covered all topics in the DS syllabus .
The only material which i have prepared is CATIA online documentation and CATIA on my PC .

Actually , one should need to understand the real mechanism and characteristics of ICONS and applications .

Overall , i am satisfied with my exam experience and result . I do not have practical work experience on CATIA but i have made it possible .
