Default Re: Need help to buy a laser show

$500 is going to be hard, what kind of powers are you looking for?

When you say laser show, I also assume you want to also be able to connect it up to your computer and control it (like in my avatar)?

You can have a look on my site (Click pic in my sig), I have a cheap set of galvos, but even they are $120 US, then you need a green laser, which can be fairly cheap, then a red laser, which can also be cheap depending on what you want, and blue is the most expensive.

Let us know what he/you want to use it for, what kind of power etc etc and I can help much more.

Yes a laser scanner i think.
With multiple colours would be nice.
But we want to put it togheter by our selfe.
What we are looking for is DIY kit that is computer controlled

Well lets see

You are going to need

Alteast

1x green labby w/ analog/ttl
1x red labby w/ analog/ttl
1x blue-ray/ blue labby w/analog/ttl

an enclosure
galvos
and some other stuff, my knowledge is really limited when it comes to Scanners
Laserpointerforums is mostly a Laser POinter forum
You should try Photonlexicon they will be able to help you if know one here can

If you are thinking about a professional build, i suggest you to use beam combiners and "lab style" emitters ..... if instead you're more interested in DIY and experiments, can be used also "normal" modules and PBS / dichro combiners ..... all depend from the result that you want, and how much time you want to use it continuously, imho

Building time wouldnt be a problem, the only probem would be the cost.
We are interested in DIY becouse i think that would be the cheapest

DIY is definitely the cheapest, and photonlexicon is the place to ask, but I would plan on spending no less than $1000-1200US on an RGB scanner such as you are describing.

Default Re: Need help to buy a laser show

Using a laserpointer isnt a good idea, since you wont have modulation and it'll run out of battery/overheat. If you want something cheap, go with something like this DealExtreme: $57.20 35mW Green Laser Module (5V Input)

or/and

DealExtreme: $17.24 5V 70mW Red Laser Circuit Board with Red Laser Module Kit

They will work much better than pointers, and also have modulation (TTL).

Without modulation, the laser would be on continuously so there wouldnt be gaps between letters etc.
