    yes. that looks like it should work. you may also need a pwm signal to drive the laser. i can do a little investigation for you. i'll be happy to do some skype time with you this weekend.

    Yea, you'd see a difference. 12K scanners barely cut it except for beams and the simplest graphics. I'd buy a cheap pair of 30K scanners before I'd buy a 20K set, though. I have an old 30K scanner I built with cheap scanners and it is noticeably better than a couple new 20K off the shelf...

    So it seems that I should be able to drive this with 48 volts DC and the RF will be generated inside the module. You can also see the name of the reseller that my uncle purchased from on the original box which includes all the precise foam. Not sure if that reseller typically refills the gas but...

    The smaller the beam size the "faster" the effect moves. If a beam is 1/2 the diameter of another it's only illuminating any part of the lumia disk 1/2 of the time and only 1/4 the area. When a 2mm diameter beam and a 4mm diameter beam are superimposed and projected through a piece of shower glass...

    I'm making slow progress, the seller chucked in the controller and, as promised, it didn't work. With a 5V supply connected, as per the manual, I found there was 5V coming out on one fuse, but nothing on the other one; I replaced the fuse (2.5A T SMD), powered it up and a tantalum cap let out the...

    Can you elaborate a little more about beam size? I am not quite sure why this would cause one color lumia to move faster than the others going through the same wheel. In this setup when it comes to beam size I would say the Red is the largest followed by green in the middle and blue with the...

    Good to hear. You can make text scroll by manually animating it to move from one side to another, but there is no automatic scrolling text tool yet, sorry.

    "Here is a video from my lumia side. You can see that there is hardly any yellow and the green jumps around the screen at a different rate then the blue and red." The difference is entirely about the sizes of the beams. For Lumia you almost never want the beams superimposed, and if they're not...

    On my cheapo Chinese laser I plug the ILDA cable into the db25 port, it then plays the ILDA files. What DAC are you using? sounds like it might be an issue with the DAC?

    I've got a cheapo Chinese laser that I picked up very cheaply, I've identified the galvos as LP12's, which are a little on the slow side. Would I see a big difference upgrading to 20k galvos? like this set- AMAZON Money is tight so I can't afford a nice set of 30k galvos. The other issue is...

    Hello Grix, I've swapped the wires over coming off the ILDA board which gave me the correct orientation. I'm really enjoying using your software and finding is easy to create ILDA patterns. Is there a way to make text scroll? BTW, the Helios DAC arrived very quickly to the UK.

    Phil, where's the diode located, maybe there's one in my scrapped head. That's a nuisance that the ballast resistor design was changed from my head to the later one; I can only think that they added a voltage sense line into the newer design.

    that would be really cool. i have ildsos and have tried it as well, not sure i was doing it right, i couldnt get it to make an animation stay on point, pun intended. maybe try using a flickery file generated by lasercam or something, or something that would be quite obvious?

    i don't know if ILDSOS lets you force a specific point count. i haven't spent much time with it. i can poke at it and attempt to generate some content for you to play with, if you'd like.

    i'm still struggling to achieve what i hope is possible. maybe frame rate is not the solution i thought it would be. basically i'm looking to convert ILDA animations generated with lasercam or quickshow into animations that have the exact same number of points in every frame, and also a constant...

    For imported ILDA files that are already optimized, you can try disabling the optimization in LaserShowGen, or checking the button "only optimize between objects", that might make them play better. I can add an option for a future version to swap X and Y, meanwhile you can rotate it 90 degrees...

I need the temperature sensing diode also, one failed in a head I have and it won't start because the tube is too hot.....when cold. Strange...diode failure? I will let you know....Phil (813)...

    Hi Phil I didn't hear back from you. After removing that ballast resistor, I found it has two high voltage leads and a resister to ground on a third white lead. The one Noble Gas shipped looks like it has only one. I'm happy to keep the first one sent from Noble Gas (Not his fault and I said...

    ive seen similiar moving ripply things like in the plasma video, but it was always from slightly melting lighting gels, doing reflective lumia effects, when the power was dialed in just right, the gel would just slightly burn, not enough to make a hole thru it, but enough to make trippy little...

    no worries ;) i assume playback speed is a 1:1 ratio of display and save the frame and highspeed may just be saving the frames to disk as quickly as possible. i'm not sure. since laser display isn't based on annoying video clock frequencies, i assume it's true 30, but i've never investigated.
