Default LEGO Mindstorms NXT Laser CNC

I finally put aside some time to record this video.




Direct link: Lego MINDSTORMS NXT Laser CNC - YouTube

It's made with one Mindstorms NXT (v1, not the revised v2) kit.

I'm having a bit of an issue with wobble, but I can probably fix it.

It's not intended as a "practical" CNC due to the difficulty of programming it and the limited range, but it was a fun project to make and burns some pretty lines into dark cardstock.

532nm "200mw" DX NewWish module (bare module, wiring is a little weird,
but the output is fairly good — update: I accidentally fried it )

3x Red 1mw cheap/crappy pointers

Most lasers have been tested with a LPM (except for the SL I and the 200mw DX module)


Upcoming/in-progress
Phatlight build (lots of ideas, but not much progress yet)
532nm "200mw" lab module (to replace the recently-deceased
(accidentally fried) "200mw" bare module)

G-2 lens upgrade & a new spare set of
higher-quality rechargeable batteries for my Survival Laser I


Like being able to see? Buy some quality safety glasses!
