For modules, diodes, lenses check out DTR's shop

For drivers see Flaminpyro, rhd, lazeerer or kiyoukan

Honestly, I want you to know...You HAVE to just get into this forum, read EVERY sections POPULAR thread and you will pick up on EVERYTHING you need to know. I NEVER planned on building a DIY laser but just by spending 2+ hours a day on this forum I think I can certainly do it. JUST browse, it takes time man, trust me it is fun to read this forum!!!

You could see the link in my signature (the heatsink one) to get some inspiration to building a RGB(V) setup. Its a hobby version and a good fun project :-) When you are ready to take it a step further you can use it in a scanner project. Happy building.
