Description

The mechanical laser show is a device that projects a pattern by quickly moving a laser. It's
hand powered, 3d printed, open source, and free to print.

Parts

Each part has different print settings:

  • Cams (2)
    15% fill, supports, no build plate adhesion
    I recommend increasing the "Support Distance X/Y" to 1mm or more

  • Crank gear
    15% fill, supports, large brim

  • Back Plate
    15% fill, supports, no build plate adhesion

  • Front Plate
    15% fill, no supports, no build plate adhesion

  • Crank handle
    100% fill, supports, large brim
    This piece has an arrow telling you which way to crank (clockwise). If you want it to look great, sand down with 100 grit sandpaper.

  • Fasteners (X axle + Y axle + 2*Bolt)
    50% fill, no supports, large brim
    The X and Y axles are different parts. One is right hand threaded and the other is left hand.

Parts to buy

  • Laser Pen (requires NON-rechargeable batteries)

  • Rubberbands
    http://www.amazon.com/BAZIC-Assorted-Dimensions-Rubber-Bands/dp/B000BLJEKU/
    It is important to use light rubber bands. Normal bands can provide too much force.

Optional Parts

  • Laser ring
    Holds down the power button. Alternative to tape.
