HiI use the same laser diode attached to a small CNC mill, and I had nice results with it, engraving pcbs and both anodized and powder coated aluminum plates.But I found sometime ago problems with the beam shape, I noted when engraving a straight line along X axis result is quite better than the same in Y axis.I guess it’s because the intended operation for this kind of lasers, which usually run in a similar way as printers do.Would this fix address this problem?Did you place the washers in the emitting side of the diode? I can’t see how this changes the shape of the beam, but I’m not any kind of expert in optics. Doesn’t the washers just push the diode further from the lens?I’m willing to do it on my laser if it works, but I’d like to know why it works.Thanks
HiFirst of all, thanks for sharing this nice project, I've been looking for a long time and didn't find anything fitting my needs, will be my first project with 3D printed partsI've downloaded the 3D files to send it to a local printer, but I'm realizing I can't hold 10cm. wide boards with this clamp.I'm trying to modify the design, although I don't have any experience with 3D design, I think it will be enough to edit the "vise_base.stl" and extend 5cm. the part where the rod is inserted, is it ok? Time to learn about 3D design...
