    Laser Warning A new build project: 7W RGB (photo heavy)

    Hi guys

    As i am trying to develop my laser building skills a bit (and i would at this point consider myself at least the most skilled laser projector builder in this country), i am also trying too look into the no-nonsense approach to building projectors, good solid projectors that will last a long time, but doesnt need to have peak super extreme performance nor be over engineered .. The following is a system i have just finished for a party-boat that will be touring scandinavia in the next months.

    Green is a 1.5W (act. output 2.1W) CNI OEM dpss, Red is 12 pc. 650nm 250mw diodes with MQ collimators and drivers, blue is 3 pcs. nichia diodes with MQ collimators and flexmod p3īs. Control is an FB3 board with DMX option and diff. board, and the galvos are the litrak's from JMlaser with the safety board option.

    All in all it works quite nicely.. as allways, one could wish for a little more red, but it is really not that bad..

    anyway.. here is a lot of pics that i shot during the construction and first tests of the system..

    So here goes:

    Great looking build

    I do not see any telescopics - how do you fit all that red on the galvos?

    looks a nice build but big red beam and no 445 beam correction, so not as nice as it could of been.

    Nice ultra-clean build!

    I'm also trying right now the Bosch aluminium profiles for my new case design, with another way though. Seems promising, very stable, but not yet finished (and not that cheap, especially the accessories!!).

    If you use the self tappers it is not too bad, but yea corner blocks and the junctions you can get without needing to drill gets expensive.

    Who are you using as a source?

    Regards, Dan.
