Hi guys. We’re busy with an artwork project for AfrikaBurn, similar to Burning Man in Nevada, and I’m looking for a suitable laser that will shine into the desert sky from our Unicorn artwork, continuously for hours on end. We can power it with 12v, 140v or 220v. The brighter and more visible the beam the better. It will be mounted about 15 feet high, shining into the sky, so there is no danger that it will shine into anyone’s eyes, and the area is off of common flight paths.

I’m looking for recommendations on a suitable laser that will do the shop without overheating.

Any recommendations?

Many thanks

Richard

You might consider hiring someone to do your laser work for you. A really good laser that would project a visible beam a long distance would be very expensive, so hiring someone who has one and does this could be a better alternative.

HMM in the desert and you need lasers NOT requiring a 'rest cycle'.. good luck.
VERY few handhelds are truly no rest usage except MYB in the winter afaik.
You need small lab lasers with large heat sink and a fan or two.
Blue diodes are robust and can take the 'heat' better than the others.

Thank you, duly noted and actioned! Intro placed in newcomer thread, and profile updated. Thanks for the feedback so far, I think we'll buld in a rest cycle in the setup, probably safest.
