It’s not only a question of size

Apart from size, there are many issues concerning the creation of the right 3D model for the plastic parts of Ziphius, being the most challenging the accommodation of all the electronics. To make them fit in a water-proof box without increasing too much the size of Ziphius isn’t a easy task. Moreover, the model involves a lot of details: it includes 12 different pieces, all of them with specific requisites. On top of that we have been adapting this 3D model to follow the engineering principles of the steel molds.

Gladly, we have now a prototype that fulfills the product major requirements (and finally the right size!): the Ziphius in the middle. We have been testing and refining it to have the final prototype, including the most important test of them all: get it into the water. We first need to produce silicon molds and then proceed with a battery of tests.
