    Photoreactive fluids

    These are the physics knowledge bombs I was looking for 💣 Now that I think of it any hole I've seen blown in soft glass has been heavily reinforced around the hole with extra glass.

    Photoreactive fluids

    I guess I should have clarified that I would be be blowing the glass and making these holes while they are hot so cracks wouldn't really be that big of a concern! But you are all right, the grinding and polishing a flat window is 100% the way to go.

    Photoreactive fluids

    Don't really have too many capitalist intentions with this, just want to create something cool ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Lava lamp on steroids! What's wrong with that???

    Photoreactive fluids

    Wasn't aware of the double posting taboo -- sorry! Yes, I'm confident in my fabrication abilities and extremely familiar with laser safety precautions and safe beam terminations. The beams will not just be shooting into the air, they will terminate at the end of the container. I have laser...

    Photoreactive fluids

    One more question regarding the project but not necessarily the dyes/fluid. The vessels containing the fluid will be blown glass, that I imagine even if polished may be too irregular to successfully transmit an undistorted laser beam. For this reason I'm planning on poking a hole in the bottom...

    Photoreactive fluids

    Awesome thanks for the ideas. Guess I'll probably be doing some experimenting with different ways of changing the opacity of fluids so they show the beams even if not actually fluorescing under the light.

    Photoreactive fluids

    Interesting! I will test that out.

    Photoreactive fluids

    Hello! I'm working on some laser/led sculptures somewhat reminiscent of these works by artist Norman Ballard (it actually won't let me post the link because my post count is too low but I will try to post it in the comments: I'm looking for a way to get the fluid to be photoreactive with...

    Liquid Sky with 150mw

    Cool thanks for all the responses. I will probably just work on swapping out the line lens for a dot one and use it for other purposes. I understand what you mean by the GITD screen, would you mind elaborating a bit about the old speaker and spring part?

    Liquid Sky with 150mw

    Lol yeah I realized that shortly after ordering it. A quick look at the perceived brightness chart made that exceedingly obvious. I would only be using this at events that were not at established venues in NY (usually basements and apartments), but that's a good thing to keep in mind. Could you...

    Liquid Sky with 150mw

    Ok, so somewhat related to my first post about my eye anxiety, I got ordered this 150mw 405nm line lens laser to use as a liquid sky effect over dance floors. I realize I probably should have gotten a lower powered laser and made a scanner, but I figured this looked like a relatively easy way to...

    Introdcution

    Thanks! Already was checked once the day after I tried it out, I just have some serious anxiety issues I'm currently working through which really compounded the problem. Have another ophthalmologist appt. made for next week.

    Introdcution

    Hey guys, Made my first post today about some safety/health and got some comforting/helpful responses from users already. I realize this is not a place to receive medical advice but in conjunction with the medical advice I already received from a doctor, these posts put my mind to rest...
