We've just posted the Autodesk Inventor CAD files for OpenROV v2.5 on GitHub. Our hope is that by making these files available, people will not only be able to build the existing design from scratch, but also modify it to make it better or more useful for specific tasks. Please share your modifications with us- we'd love to see them!
You can find the newest files here:
Files are organized in folders by subsystem: Battery Pack, E-Chassis, Internal Structure, Main Endcap, and Shell, and there is an assembly file that has these parts put together. Each part is formatted as an Autodesk Part file (*.ipt) and the assembly is formatted as an Autodesk Assembly file (*.iam).
In the future, we'd like to also host these files in more universal formats (such as STEP) so if anyone would like to take the time to make those conversions, we'd welcome it! We'd also like to make a 3D model of the entire assembled ROV- complete with all of the various parts that make it work. There's definitely a lot of CAD work to be done, but hopefully this is a good start!
