Update on my Vigotec VG-L7X modifications:
The project is now called MoBeam. I got tired of typing Vigotec.
I completed the design/fab of a simple vertical adjustment laser module slide.
Not yet knowing what’s the best way to adjust focus for my L7X I decided to build a slide that would enable simple adjustment of the diode modules vertical position.
This is a simple design and concept. Replace the stock carriage interface plate with one that has a sliding channel for the diode module. The up/down motion is achieved by loosening a binding screw, sliding the laser module, and then retightening the screw.
This may be too simple for long-term use but I needed to make a fast prototype that would allow a simple yet large range of adjustment. Using this proto I will identify how much range & precision the vertical adjustment needs to have.
Once the adjustment needs are identified I may change the approach to a screw slide.
