3D model description

This is an STL file for an underwater towed camera vehicle. Simply 3D print it and it’ll be ready for fitting a GoPro style camera fact several cameras can be fitted.

It is printed in 2 parts

If you wish to go a step further - you can fit standard radio controlled out runner motors and props - then you’ll have the makings of a nifty MICRO ROV.

Using this you will be able to get amazing underwater camera footage. You can deploy this submersible for surveys - but it is also is a remarkable platform for underwater movie makers, anglers, explorers, scientists, fisherman, search and rescue. You can tow it with a camera and bait or lure to get some amazing fish action shots.

Some technical stuff here:

In use the body floods full of water thus trapping the water which in turn becomes inertia -that means the vehicle is extremely smooth for camera panning and towed underwater flight. If you make it up as a Micro ROV it may be used in marinas, canals, lakes, lochs and can work, depending on many variables, running straight into the tide.

If you want to resize the vehicle you can do that in your 3D printer. If you want further alterations – you can contact us for a chat regarding your requirements.

I’ve been making Micro Underwater Vehicles for many years in R&D as well as making underwater movies, salvage and treasure surveys. All my products have been tested in the real world and work extremely well.

With a history of designing a variety of products from turbines to ROVs and a multitude of products in between - it's great now to be move ahead and work in the world of 3d printing.

What a fantastic way to get shapes and angles that normal manufacturing is incapable of. This is just the beginning...the coming years will bring many more advancement. It's an exciting time to be designing!
