Trouble Shooting / Re: Assembling the lenses correctly

Thanks for your response.
As i tryed to figure out the right positions of the lenses i slipped with a tool. There was a contact to the laser diode i think, because now it is broken... ;-(

;-liver

Cant you resolder the contact or make a new one and solder it on?

Do i have to add some extra fans for the laser module to prevent overheating of it?

;-liver
Should not think so if you are not using full power.  IF you intend using it at MAX then I would say Yes...up to you...
On the other hand..if you want to cut really thick wood then buy a scroll saw....(jigsaw)..... :P  I have a 3 watter but if I cut thicker than 3mm I use the saw.....Quicker as well  if its not too complicated (which it normally is not)...

Mmmm...15w   CLAIMED.    Bit overkill for card and thinnish ply when a 2.5w up to 5w will do.
Zax will probably give you the lowdown on these as he more genned up on the techy side of them...

The lasers that come with Eleksmaker machines are severely overdriven.  If you run them at their advertised 2.5W power (and the ones with higher ratings are even more ridiculous), they'll start to take damage and not cut as effectively, burning out much quicker.

Have you tested all the different power lasers from Eleksmaker to make this statement?  How do you arrive at this conclusion??

The way the operator is leaning into the laser gun you would think it had a reaction rearwards like a  powerful water hose reaction.

« on: July 16, 2017, 02:46:07 AM »
Unless the laser unit is totally enclosed you SHOULD wear glasses all the time it is operating.....as it can certainly blind you never mind about the camera.
Its not really safe to leave a laser operating and wander off  either!

You are advised to Google  Laser Safety and  read all about it.
