The only thing im not fond of with those builds is the bulkiness.. That and the
final product was a handheld with a really large head and off center aperture.
A nice build overall, just not my 'cup of tea' :beer:
My goal from the beginning was a centered exit beam and no more than a 30mm
head for the laser.
If I wasn't adding variable control, the length would reduce to 100mm or so
vs 160mm where the 'on the fly' linear control section will take up real estate..
Thats funny. I had a guy with no posts ask me how it could be done, a few months ago. I wonder if thats him.
I remember the contest. WL said if you could design them a white laser, you'd win a white laser, LMAO. Its was quickly laughed off the forum. If you could already build a white laser, why would you need to win one? Plus you'd be making WL 10s of thousands of dollars to boot.
