is the laser diode I used. The driver is a home made one using two LM317's. One for regulating the voltage and one for regulating the amps. It might not be efficient, but it is dirt cheap and does the job just fine.

If you do plan on experimenting with these kinds of lasers, be careful. I do not take any responsibility for any harm or damage. Even with all of the protection I have in place, I am still somewhat scared of the laser I use. It is invisible and VERY powerful.

I will share the driver (and other electronics) I used when I have progressed further with this project. I am currently searching for Waxes and plastics to print with and making the final adjustments to start printing in 3D.
