3W 4’x4′ Arduino Laser Cutter/Engraver

https://youtu.be/CbzY5ECsFuQ https://youtu.be/4ybdqgmePDs In this tutorial you will learn how to make your own 4 ft by 4 ft, Arduino controlled, 3 watt laser engraver / cutter (for thin materials) for around 300$. The main thing that separates this tutorial from other laser engraver tutorials on here is the roughly 42 x 42 inch cutting/engraving area. This project arose when I was trying to create a 20 x 15 ...

Physicists Of University of Rochester Have Created Polariton – A Particle With Negative Mass

A group of researchers led by Nick Vamivakas from the University of Rochester has successfully produced particles which have negative mass in an atomically thin semiconductor material. According to the researchers, they have created a device that can generate LASER light using a significantly small amount of energy. All made possible with the help of this so-called negative mass particles. Quantum physicist ...

Pocket Laser Engraver.

I have been trying to get my hands on a laser cutter for some time but they always seem out of reach. All the great things that can be done with a real laser cutter tickle the imagination. I feel it's time to share my latest project - a low cost laser engraver,. The workspace is a bit small but none the less it works and comes so cheap that most will be able to replicate the result. I did take a few shortcu ...

UPGRADE YOUR SHADES TO FIND LOST ITEMS

Ever wish you could augment your sense of sight? [Nick Bild]’s latest hack helps you find objects (or people) by locating their position and tracking them with a laser. The device, dubbed Artemis, latches onto your eyeglasses and can be configured to locate a specific object. Images collected from the device are streamed to an NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier board, which uses a SSD300 (Single Shot MultiB ...

How to Make an Entire Drone/Multirotor and Camera Gimbal Using Laser Cut Parts

the photo you see was taken from my first ever copter which i built in 2 hours, what i had not mentioned was my first copter used a laser cut frame i designed and produced whilst in school.This difference between this post and my other about building multirotors is this is mainly to do with designing a custom frame, however i thought rather than  post links to the next tutorial, i would include it both ...

Simple LiDAR Using the Laser Rangefinder Uni-T UT390b, Arduino and Turbo Pascal

Some days ago I bought a laser rangefinder (Uni-T UT390b, f.e. http://www.dx.com/de/p/uni-t-ut390b-45m-laser-dist...) to realise a simple LiDAR. The rangefinder has an accuracy of +/- 2mm and is able to measure distances up to 45m. This will be enough for my living room ;-) You'll also need: * Arduino Mega (because of more than one Serial Outputs) * 2 Servos * Servo tilt (f.e. http://physicalcomputing. ...

DIY Arduino 3D Laser Scanner

FabScan is an open-source, do-it-yourself 3D laser scanner.It started out as a Bachelor's thesis by Francis Engelmann, supervised by René Bohne. You can find official project here. I made my own box from MDF hood sheets and use different hardware parts.I decided to make this guide to show to you my work. All credits for Arduino software and computer application goes to FabScan team, so thank you very m ...

A SUPER EASY LASER ENGRAVER

CNC comes in all shapes and sizes, from huge industrial lathes to homebuilt wire benders. [MJKZZ] has built their own compact rig, using optical drive parts to create a cute but effective laser engraver. (Video embedded below.) The build aims to keep things simple by holding the laser stationary, and moving the bed instead. The laser in question is a 500 mW unit, driven by the Z axis on the Arduin ...

The MicroSlice V1 | a Tiny Arduino Laser Cutter

A few years ago I saw an Instructable where Groover had used a pair of DVD-RW drives to make a pocket laser engraver. Inspired by the idea, driven by the recent purchase of a full-sized 50 watt CO2 laser cutter, and roused by the launch of the Microcontroller contest I took the decision to have a crack at making my own mini laser engraver.I have called the project the MicroSlice.What are the features of the ...
