Option 1: Read more
Option 2: Read carefully
And most important option 3: Consider the advices given!
Someone said that the lenses can be purchased at o-like.com...5 posts later you ask where to buy some *tststs*
Now the next no-go: someone adviced you to go for an 50mW Laser to be rather "safe"..now you ask where to buy 100mW :wtf:
If you don't need the advice of experienced people, why do you ask them?
couldnt you accomplish somwthing close to your wantS with a simple fan pattern(w/ a line lens) slowly rotating-with 1RPM MOTOR==IE A CLOCK. Sweep is way harder than simple rotation. could be done , tho , with a RC sevro.
You could take a mirror and attach one side of it to a base plate with a hinge. On the opposite side attach a bar/rod. The other side of the bar connects to the edge of a disc on a slowy rotating motors axle. The motor is mounted to the same base plate.
It would work like a piston in a car, translating rotating motion to back and forth motion. Then it moves on side of the mirror with the other side on a hinge, so a laser bounced off the mirror would "scan" back and forth.
Also for the green laser, I believe modwerx.com stocks o-like modules and they are US based so you could have it in a couple days.
yep- that would turn in the same fashion as a osssilating fan- I have had a mirror on one for ~7yrs. cheapie plastic fan- it rotates a Tunnel EFX back and forth. and its on a hinge so I can aimit where I want.
good solution Ben!
hope we see some pics/vids after all this input---lol
