Here are the drawings for my laser. They are presented "as is" with no guarantee. You should determine if it will work for you before you start building or buying parts. I currently provide limited support via the forum. Please use the forum so others can hear the answers. I cannot guarantee support will continue. If you make improvements to the design, please let me know so others can benefit. This laser will continue to evolve, so don't complain if I change it after you made some parts.


Safety: Lasers are dangerous in many ways. They can kill you with high voltage, they can blind you with the beam. The laser can start fires inside or outside the enclosure. Never operate the machine without safety glasses and never operate it unattended. Bottom Line: You built it, so you are responsible for all aspects of safety.

Drawing Notes: Many drawings are not fully dimensioned. These are usually items that will most likely cut via CNC. All drawings are to scale. If you need more dimensions, you can add please them yourself. Most stuff was drawn in Pro/Engineer Wildfire 5. I can provide native Pro/E files, STEP files, DXF and several other formats. It takes a lot of time to maintain multiple formats, so only request things that are really necessary.
