This is an ideal vehicle for all underwater needs. It can be used to help anglers identify the best sites for casting, it can be used to survey the condition of harbours, canals etc, it can be used to look for treasure or lost items. The list is as endless as your imagination.
The main parts (as well as the bait/tug/camera boat (http://cults3d.com/en/various/bait-camera-tug-boat) and Marine Science Platform) were all designed and 3D printed in ABS.
You'll notice the lead boat also has a Go Pro camera at the rear. This works both above and below the boat. The Marine Science Platform is being towed and manoeuvred by the action of the lead boat.
Underneath the science platform the Underwater Camera Vehicle had a Go Pro Hero 3 Black attached. It is able to capture a huge amount of information that would be otherwise - unseen.
Here is a movie of it in action: https://youtu.be/QirHDfrsfIE
This is a great professional tool as well as being great for families to use for leisure activities.
If you wish to have a custom build to accommodate your underwater camera - it can be built to size. Please feel free to contract us to discuss.

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!
