I have decided that I will be using dvd rw drives to build my laser engraver in order to save space and reduce overall cost. Rather than extracting the red diode and putting it into an aixiz module, would it be possible to keep the diode inside the sled and use the preexisting optics? Although the lens on the sled is not adjustable, I could just attach the sled to aluminum extrusion with sliding nuts to adjust the beam. Thanks for any replies.
