    The Micro Driver Module (MDM) concept (picture)

    Not sure if this thread is dead or not...but the last few comments from Pontiac and Toaster got me thinking again... As well as ideas from Toke... Let's say I've got this host: And I've designed a new head for it that's more of a heatsink like this: Note: I'm not sure if something like this...

    LOL... What colors and finish would you like them in?:crackup:

    Hey Pontiac... check your email and let me know.

    The Micro Driver Module (MDM) concept (picture)

    Ok first, I apologize for the size and number of images in the post... but there's just so much to see I couldn't have shown it in just a couple shots. Here's a hybrid example of host + heatsink + module/driver + module/head ... you'll get the picture... I decided to use the SolarForce L2 host...

    Something like this? I'd imagine these would be a lot easier to make, since they could be done on a lathe...except for maybe the blind threads on the back end of the head. Note: I didn't let this render "cook" as long so the quality isn't as good (ie. grainy)

    Interesting... I had tried horizontal slices in earlier designs, but it didn't look like it was going to work... However, since my last image has gone out past the current module size, I'll try it again using your ideas... Shouldn't take long... Thanks.

    I figured as much...but it was still fun to make "virtually" :) Hey btw, did you get the pics I sent you?

    The Micro Driver Module (MDM) concept (picture)

    Hmmm, sounds interesting, but I'm having a hard time visualizing it... What would the "flat back end" look like exactly? I'm assuming that my finned module head (ie. "the diode part of the module") is already close to what you're talking about...it's just the back portion I'm not getting. I'll...

    Ok, some mentioned "fins" on the heatsink, however that would defeat the whole purpose of trying to do this within the current module size limits/requirements (which is why I used "inverted" fins in the OP). However, just for kicks I went ahead and modeled these... Just looking at them cracks...

    The Micro Driver Module (MDM) concept (picture)

    Right...in fact it's that quote from Dr. Lava that actually got me thinking about something like this... The idea is that the part of the driver that needs heatsinking, would lie flush with the portion of the module's heatsink. I think Pontiac's design (see above) is much better for this, and he...

    The Micro Driver Module (MDM) concept (picture)

    Totally agree...which is why I'll leave this up to those who actually know what they're doing. I'm just glad someone is already thinking about this, at it looks like Pontiac isn't too far off from having these.

    The Micro Driver Module (MDM) concept (picture)

    Doh! I never thought to actually ask you for the physical geometry/file... That would have been too easy :crackup: I went ahead an threw this together...since I had the other objects and the materials already set, this actually was probably quicker. Note to everyone: I take zero credit for...

    The Micro Driver Module (MDM) concept (picture)

    Hey, do you mind if I take a stab at a rendering using your design? Maybe a little mod here or there...but still your design ...you'll have full credit, not trying to step on toes...just want to see how it looks. Thanks.

    The Micro Driver Module (MDM) concept (picture)

    Note: This is specifically modeled with Dr. Lava's drives in mind, and the "insert" would be designed so that the driver would contact it where it needs to. Toke's idea of "shims" sounds like a good one. Well there you go then...someone who actually knows what he's doing has already considered...

    The Micro Driver Module (MDM) concept (picture)

    Ok, so I've been wondeirng if a better, more heat efficient Aixiz type module could be designed that is dedicated to Dr. Lava's micro drives (Flex and Boost). They're only 9mm x 12mm x 6mm, so much of the empty space in the module body could be used for heat-sinking. I also think that copper...

    First DIY using an old host.

    So so true! :crackup: Thanks for the feedback and rep really appreciate it. I am hooked, and I'm actually trying my hand at custom heatsink for a specific host...if it works out you'll see a thread on it...if no thread it means i crashed and burned. As for the heatshrink on the clips, I have...

    Hey congrats Bob! Well done.

    Kryton Beast Logo CONTEST!!!

    True, but that's easily acheived 1 of 3 ways: 1) Just outline all your letters before applying the dither OR... 2) Choose a different shade of gray that's not so close to black (background) before dithering OR... 3) Use what's called a non-weighted dither so that background color doesn't...

    Kryton Beast Logo CONTEST!!!

    Well, ok then... How fine grain is the process? If it's as fine as your bear picture, then you could use something like an ordered dither or Floyd Steinberg dithering to achieve whatever greyscale you want/need. This image is a 100% monochrome image using Floyd Steinberg dithering Or using an...

    A 1W 445nm laser built in just under 5 miniutes (with pictures)

    From daguin... He apparently has a few :) Look at this thread: http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/445nm-diodes-stock-xj-a140-52076.html Note: The more you buy, the cheaper they/he gets.
