Default Any CNC machined bodies for a green laser?

Looking to build a green astronomy laser around 15-30mW.

Are there any really nice CNC machined aluminum body/housings available to use on a DIY build?

I really like the style of Wicked Lasers Spyder housings the best.

I was really interested in getting a Nano, but apparently they are cast, not CNC machined like I thought?

I realize the Spyder series is their really big lasers, but hoping there is a housing that looks similar/just as cool but similar in size to their Nano series? Since it's only going to be 15-30mW & I would like to keep it around 6" so it can easily fit in my pocket.

So what are my options?

Out of curiosity, why do you prefer machining over casting?

Cleaner lines, better detail etc. CNC maching is amazing in what it produces.

I agree CNC over cast any day of the week.
