"Laser Sky" special effect using Ultimaker and Arduino

Recommended Posts

I used my Ultimaker to make a laser effect called "Laser Sky."  The heart of the mechanism is a spinning multi-sided mirror.  People often take apart laser printers to get such a mirror, but I was able to get pretty good results printing one from scratch.

Please enjoy a process video which includes concept, printing, wiring, programming, and assembly:

Not only cool, but very well laid out and pedagogic without becoming boring.

 

I agree. Very well done on all aspects. I'm actually going to use this as a way to get my electronics and programming skills jump started (never programmed Arduino, only games and that is not the same thing as I have to learn about boards and such) Great education all the way around and I can see ways that this will provide jumping off points.
