Homebuilt laser projector

Beitrag von genesis » Fr 23 Apr, 2004 12:19 pm

Hi :)
i’m French and I’m a newbee on your forum.
(sorry for my bad English because I’m French :) )
I am impassioned by electronic and laser since I’m child and I wanted to build a laser projector :)

After i have buy some parts from a german friend ( hi Marco ;) )
Theses parts are
- one multiline 100mW Argon laser
- one AOM
- a pack of dichroic and micrometric mirrors
- one Catweazzle scan engine unit

and I already have:
- a 65mW green DPSS
- one 50mW laser diode at 660nm
- LDS software with Ryia card

and now the construction :)

first step : found a case
i have found one old flycase at my work
after lot of cleaning i obtain this :

Bild

inside :

Bild

second step the laser reception :
the head

Bild

the power supply:

Bild

and the wire section of the power supply :

Bild

12A @ 230v wow !

and for cooling the fan :

Bild

lot of noise !! :D

for the head holding i have found a PVC pipe holder

Bild

and the first laser test :

Bild

and with a diffraction grating :

Bild

that’s beautiful !

and now the main work!

the aerations

the litle :

Bild


screwing the protection roast:

Bild

and after two other aerations :

Bild

showed by a friend :

Bild

i now cut the rear of the flycase to instal some electronic cards. To control the laser power and temperature.

The argon laser include a DB25 connector allowed to control and monitor the laser power
I use it by my system and tell him a analogic voltage (0 to 5v for 4 to 10A ) and I monitor the current by the feedback voltage of 0.1v/A
I have used linear isolation amplifier (iso122) to kep the electrical isolation between the laser power supply and my system.
The system control the laser discharge and cooling the head with the fan even when the laser discharge is turned off the cooling continue until the head temperature exceed 30°C
The monitor control the red laser diode peltier to trim the wavelength from 650 to 640nm
But it’s not finished
To display the informations i use a 240*64 pixels graphic LCD with built in T6963C controller and to eart of the system is a P89C668 8051 core microcontroller with built in 8Ko RAM 64Ko code, I²C UART and in situation programming with serial communication.
The parameters can be adjusted by a 16 buttons pad.
The system allow to control the security shutter, fog machine and R/G/B laser on/off
Now more pictures :

Cutting the rear panel :

Bild

the hot air fan exhaust:

Bild

and all cuttings :

Bild

after routing the PCBs fabrication...
the red laser and I²C temperature sensor PCB:

Bild



Argon head holder test :

Bild

we see the rear control panel and bread board cutted by laser

i make a mistake on the dimensions but that good…
we see the security switch for the electromagnetic shutter and laser interlock


the control system PCB :

Bild

my name :D:
Bild

the keypad controller :

Bild

mount of the differents cards

Bild

and a front view:

Bild
i start to mount the optics

Bild

the AOM

Bild

but i not use it for the moment

a view of the green DPSS :

Bild

a view on the catweazle galvo set

Bild


inside the box just before to close it….yes ! lot of cables :D

Bild


The rear of the control panel
Bild

the 4 leds below the security switch are a voltage indicator because when i go in LAN game there sometimes wiring mistake and the voltage go up to 420v!! (two phases)
these four leds indicate the voltage:
the first for 110v (yellow) second (blue) 230v the third (red ) 380v and the fourth (red) 420v
and they work on rechargeable battery. In normal operation on 230v the battery is charged.
When the main supply is disconnected the leds work for 4 minutes on battery and go in idle state.
When the main supply is applied (but main switch not turned on) the led are turned on (by the 9v battery) and indicate the voltage….with this I know if the voltage is 230v or not befor turn on tne main switch.
If the voltage exceed the 230v a buzzer make a beep and the red led flashes


The first test but the microcontroller code is light :

Bild

and a test in real conditions :

the optical path :

Bild

scan engine working :

Bild

that fabulous to see them working

and a projection on a wall :

Bild


a test with laser illusions (before LDS)

Bild

and a little video

http://perso.wanadoo.fr/genesis.thequar ... r/test.avi


the only problem is the weight…that really heavy :(

and now some test pictures :
that was difficult to carry it on my bed :D

Bild

Bild


and the control display with more informations :
Bild


and another video
http://perso.wanadoo.fr/genesis.thequar ... ser/ut.avi


i have now make a test with tha AOM but it’s difficult to adjust

Bild

Bild

close view of the AOM:

Bild

in french voilà :)
i m here and i work to fix the AOM and electromagnetic shutter.
After I need to install the red laser and adjust the mirrors.
The program need to be improved

I’m happy to have make this child dream project and make it working.
any comment, amelioration, questions are welcome and if you want info about the electronic system ask question :)

genesis

ps: if the pictures are too large, i can resize them :)

Hello genesis, only once large praise to you. Your projector makes already which ago. Looks very good. I hope you could with the instruction files for LDS something begin. Concerning your inquiry in the other Thread, because of exchanging Lasershows, I can only say, which would be at the original attached software CD already alone a quantity of good Shows thereby be over file sharing it however a rather long time to high-load these since it concerns thereby several MB data. New Shows costs money, which should be also understandable, because finally puts behind there a quantity work to program a new Show.
Gruß Sven

thanks you for your post :)
yes the pdf help me a lot! :)
but for "Your projector makes already which ago. Looks very good" i not understand. do you use a translator?

for the topic about shows, i have a lot with the LDS software but in the topic i tell about sharing home made shows, not commercial :)
i know theses shows are expensive
but that was just an idea to create a free lasershow database such as ilda public domain frames :)

Halli Hallo

Very nice projektor! :P
Last year I was in paris and I looked at the Laserists but couldn´t find one in france. :cry:
Maybe next time! 8)

i have worked on it this week :)

i have trimmed the lasers and AOM

Bild

the optical path:
Bild

the output:
Bild

and the box on my bed:
Bild

and show tests:
http://perso.wanadoo.fr/genesis.thequar ... /show1.avi

the aom modulation:
http://perso.wanadoo.fr/genesis.thequar ... largon.avi

but i think i can adjust it more efficiently

and a part of the "creation" laser show but without music
http://perso.wanadoo.fr/genesis.thequar ... ation2.avi


and more tests by night :)

http://perso.wanadoo.fr/genesis.thequar ... /show2.avi

http://perso.wanadoo.fr/genesis.thequar ... /show3.avi

that work great!! more than i espected:

Bild

all work great and i have added one more fan and electromechanical security shutter this week end....

hi :) lot of time between answer :)
i have made some system evolutions :)
now the firmware include gauges
Bild

and i have added a red laser for test :)

Hi :)
i make some evolutions :)
i have add a medialas red laser

Bild Bild
Bild Bild Bild Bild

the modulation is better with this one :)

Bild BildBild BildBild Bild Bild Bild Bild Bild

Bild

and with gaze screen

Bild

Bild

diffraction grating test :) i love that!
Bild

some test in raster frame :) the wall was 30 meters away

Bild Bild Bild

here a video of the system running:

http://thequark.free.fr/laser/rvbtest.wmv


now i work on the microcontroller code to use icons :) thats better than text.
here a litle video of the icons test

Hi all :)
i make more pics of the system :)
on a gaze screen...yes the AOM is disabled :)
Bild
this picture was taken for my avatar :D

Bild

thats me :)
Bild

and the beam path :)
Bild

Bild


Bild

theses pictures are the last taken by my camera because the sensor is really dead with the laser :(

here is a video of a show at a LAN party with two lasers :)
the mine is at the right and the left one is the Ledinblue laser :)
be aware this video size is 220Mo in divx 5.1 codec :)
on the video we se the "nothing but you" great Gento show :)

http://www.bbtoff.com/bbtoff/lan/game7/ ... 0game7.avi

and here is a deffect harware crash test :D
http://bbtoff2.free.fr/Crash%20test%20G7.avi
don't worry all is cleaned after and go to trash to be recycled ;)

thank's to Bbtoff for theses videos :)

thats because my friend has removed the file from his ftp.
i need to find an ftp with large amount of place approx. 250Mo to up the files.
