Default Re: laser scanner project

ok i scrapped the xbox360 idea.. the components are too big

i bought a 12"x12" 1/4" aluminum plate to mount everything to..

so here is the list of parts i have

The Big Stuff
scanpro20
150mw green
250+mw red (custom build almost completed)
12x12 mounting plate

The Little Stuff
some optics mounts
replacement galvo mirrors
red/green dichro (for combining)

The scanpro is tested with the green laser and is working well

thinggs i still need

405 (bluray) laser (diodes on the way)
DAC (getting one for $150 from a forum member in less that 60 days)
metal box to put it in (may just make this out of sheet metal)
another dichro gor combining the 405nm

I will be updating this thread with pics of the build once all the parts are in.. (excluding the dac)

Cool. Just a vague question, with the scanpro20 does it allow you to change the output of the laser module if it is analogue?

So during your laser show, you can get a full spectrum of colours? (If it's RGB).

i doubt you will have an issue..
are you buying it pre assembled? if not then if the pot pops off, it will be your fault

what laser you using with the flex mod ?


I brought a pre-assembled one

I love the fact you wanted to put your projector in a 360 case, I have a dead 360 here, think i should try it ?
