This thing is for mounting a focus lens directly to a Reci W6 laser tube. I think it should work as is on any Reci tube, but it parameterized, so it can easily be adapted for other tubes.
Why would you want to mount the lens directly to the tube? I suppose for most setups it would only be used for testing the laser. For my purposes, I plan on moving the whole laser tube on my large CNC machine, so I should be able to put this to good use (I am not going to steer the beam, I am going to steer the whole tube).
Works great. Very snug fit on both the laser and the laser head. Video of it in action here (it is the green part):
The laser head I am using is this one: http://lightobject.com/1820mm-Laser-head-w-air-assisted-Ideal-for-K40-machine-P701.aspx
Special thanks to TrevM for making the really useful thread library!
Printed at 101% (for PLA shrinkage), use slic3r (0.1 layers, 100% fill) and fits the laser tube and laser head perfectly.
