So where are we on getting this together?

I have a bunch of alum tid bits... to donate.

I would like to get the 30k scanner group buy going soon.

If all the parts are sent to someone are they willing to put together red/green modules?

If so I would be down for paying a small fee for there time... or If I could donate some of the supplies needed towards making them I will do that as well.

What I got so far





I bought spares, so as long as I get at least one going, I know where to order to duplicate.  Can't find any red PBC now.  Considering Combining Blue..

Update Marc came over and showed me how to assemble diodes into modules, now I really want to get the new DrLava drivers so I can make dual red, and drive green as well.  I think I'm going to go with a 100mw CNI Green http://lasershowparts.com/store/index.php?_a=viewCat&catId=51.  If there is a another favorite out there let me know.  For now I will see what these cheap 100-200mw pointer ones do and PCAOM blank it if I can.




 That blue is sooo powerful!   makes my 30mw Greeny look like faint dot next to it.  http://www.inprox.net/laser_projector.   I am using the NML  85% dicros and they are damn good compared to the old 99% ones I have.  Looking forward to the Build!  My pangolin card is out for repair.. hope fully Hayden will have that fixed next week.

The cheap pointers are non-polarized, so a PCAOM or even an AOM will effect the beam but it's a total waste!

I just ordered a 150mW pointer module. DrLava and I plan to TEC cool it and analog mod it. If that goes well, then I will order another one and knife edge combine them.

The 150mW module was $63 shipped!

I'll definitely let you know how it goes! ;D

You need a LaserBoy DAC!

I have one sitting right here for sale, just for you!

I want to make a special post to thank Andrew for all of his hard work and expertise in making this projector!

He was at my house yesterday for more than 13 hours! And that was just to put stuff on the optics table that he had already spent WEEKS putting together before he came over.

This is a super extra special projector for me, because it was largely in trade for my work on writing the code that is the core of LaserBoy. Andrew has based his laser software on the original concepts of the LB data structure / memory object and its internal, self-referential overloaded math operations! He also had eyes for one of my newer paintings, "The Mind Eraser". So we made a deal!

I love the idea that this stuff came from one of the best sources in the world. I know him. He's my friend. He values my work. This did not cost me money!

How cool is that? !!! ;D

James.  :)
