well i need to drill a hole in steel about 3-5mm from 4-5 meters. is it possible to get that strong laser?
What are you actually trying to drill hole in? and why do you need to be 5m+ away?
I've been in laser based manufacturing (and engineering) for a long time and have only ever seen two legitimate scenarios where a hole has to be created at a distance, one was for IED / UXB (Fluidic Dischargers) and the other was working on Nuclear Fuel Rods.
To make a 5mm hole in 1mm steel the Super Alia THV round will do it from a 9mm handgun.
You have peaked my interest though, neither of the above would bring you to a laser pointer forum so that makes me wonder why you need to do it?
