LaserProject

Its un-finished.... but occasionally, something is better than nothing.

A few years back a good friend of my said to me "I have this great idea, lets mount a paint ball gun on an X,Y turret and make a huge inkjet printer!" After a little research we found that it had already been done... (and the time that it has taken me to get this published the MythBusters have done it as well, search youtube)

Eventually we setteled on a servo driven mirror to aim laser light at photo paper to create a "Laser Printer"

Here are a few images from and the python code to this project, we have a stepper motor version in the works... but time/funding has run short... positive feedback might go a long way to starting the project back up... thanks and Enjoy.
