Now we're talking. Excellent ArcticDude. I want one. :D I can't rep you yet, but sure will when I can. :beer:
Look at that yellow and cyan. :drool:

How is the white balance in person. I take it that it pretty good considering the quality of the cyan and yellow.

As Bob said, simply stunning, no other way to put it! This is by far, the most impressive build I've seen in a long time. :beer:
Congats on building this beauty and sharing with us!

Thank's for the compliments guys! :thanks:

I'm glad this build is now over and I can finally take a little break and enjoy this RGB laser and it's amazing multicolor beams! (for a while before next build) :D

White balance is just astonishing!
Compared to my other "El Cheapo" RGB module (which is way too blue tinted) this OptLaser RGB module will knock you out with beam quality / color balance, that's for sure!


I'm in love to BigClive RGB controller "Colour touch" mode. It randomize such color combinations that I never even could dream of. Pity you can't see the R/G/B values of current color.


Trying to get few RGB sky beamshots tonight! ;)

You're tempting me with the Optlaser RGB modules ArcticDude. :whistle:
Colour balance and beam quality are the most important things to me about an RGB. :)

I agree that in laserpointers worls 400USD is not that small amount. Maybe some more people would be interested to create a groupbuy? For like 5 pcs?
I'm happy that many hobbysts are our customers but also we can not lower the price too much because we have our distributors and agreements with them :(
If you made a module which was different in some way, it would not be breaking your distributor agreements because it would be a different module. I have ordered high gain Yagi antennas that way, had the manufacturer make a change which was better for me and then the model was no longer the same.

CONGRATULATIONS!
Amazing work and even better attitude!

But for how much total could I make on and how fragile is it? Any way to add digital rgb input?

I'm glad you liked it. :)

All required parts are listed in thread first post, you can calculate how much it will cost (aprox 1000€ - 1300€) depending host material etc.

PTEG as in a material is ridiciously durable but there is delicate dichros / optics inside. Droping the laser may cause dichros mis-alignment but those can be re-align again.

What you mean by adding digital input?

1000€ is quite a bit, if it was half price I would love to do it.... but it's an amazing laser, probably THE laser.
Adding digital RGB values so you can precisely control the laser colour. :)

With 4duino it would be actually quite easy add digital controls for RGB laser.



But seriously..

- if you are going to find portable RGB laser with programmable logic for 500€, that may take a while.
