Note: This log entry is a living document. I'll be updating this post to reflect the current configuration as time goes on.. There will also be a log at the end of the post noting modifications to the log, etc..
This log entry will instruct you on building the Laser Emitter Assembly..
- 1. Needle Nosed Pliers
- 2. 1.5mm Hex Driver
- 3. 5/64" Hex Driver
- 4. Philips Screwdriver
- 5. ESD Style Precision Tweezers
- 6. Nitrile Gloves
- 7. White Cotton Gloves
- 8. KimTech KimWipes
- Printed versions of the following 3D Printed Objects from the gitHub repository:
- (1x) 532nm 150mw Green Laser Module with Thermoelectric Cooling and TTL Modulated
- (1x) CVI 532nm bandpass interference filter one inch dia. # F10-532-4
- (4x) M4 - 16mm Socket Cap Screws
1. Print and clean up the plastic parts. Be sure to use the 3D printed part guidelines. All spurs and supports need to be cleaned as much as possible.
2. Grab the bottom half of the laser emitter assembly and the 532nm Pass Filter.
3. Make sure you are wearing the nitrile gloves and a pair of the white gloves over them and place the CVI 532nm bandpass interference filter one inch dia. # F10-532-4 into the bottom half of the laserEmitter Assembly and set aside for the moment..
NOTE: Make sure the surface mirror side is on the outside of the assembly!
4. Grab the laser emitter power supply.
5. Remove the screws from the cover and remove the cover. Then remove the strain relief screws.
6. Once that is done, remove the laser emitter power cable.
7. Grab the top half of the laser emitter assembly and pass the connector end of the laser emitter power cable through the small hole towards the back from the inside to the outside..
8. Slide the laser emitter assembly top half down the cable and fit the emitter into the assembly.
9. Grab the bottom half of the assembly, gently place in on the laser emitter and make sure not to scratch the pass filter! Then place the 4 M4 16mm screws in the screw holes.
10. Tighten the screws.
11. Grab the laser emitter power supply, the cover and its screws..
12. Place the cover back on the power supply and screw it on.
And that completes this section! Congratulations!
Set aside and move to next build!
