I used a scrap piece of alupanel sandwiched between the extrusions to create a shelf for my laser power supply.
It seems to be working well. It was a bit of a pain to get it in there, but its solid.

Photo update.

I decided to build a dedicated cabinet for the laser. I built two drawers on one side and utilized the other side for the fan, air assist pump, and the cooling system. The exhaust fan will be enclosed in the lower box and will vent out the side. Then the other items will be mounted to the top of that platform. I also wired the cabinet with some switched outlets to power the accessories.

Where's the water bucket going to end up?

Thanks Stig!

TLH, the cooling system will sit on that shelf above the blower box.

Halloween Update!

I had some clearance issues with the electronics module and I nixed the SSR's so I tore it down and rebuilt it. I put the 24v distribution blocks in the spot where the SSR's were originally. Tomorrow I will make all the final connections, and install the laser PSU.

Do you have a BOM for your electronics? I want to do the same set up but am not sure where to get the parts and what I need. I have the same DSP, controllers, PSU and need the rest.

Thanks

All the high voltage will be up high so it should minimize any potential interference. My 24v psu and stepper drivers are pretty big and take up a lot of real estate and I don't know if I could have found a spot for it down below.


Thinking about following your lead and using a steel plate - how thick is your plate? Haven't done much (any) work with steel - going thin would be easier to work with but I'm not sure how much it would deflect when loaded.

Hello! your laser looks amazing. To be honest I have been using your steps at kevinpaulphoto.com along with the documentation in buildlog.net.
I would like to know what is the schematic system you used for your laser. I have purchased the dsp controller awc608 and 3 x M542T drivers for my stepper motors and do not have really clear the schematic system. I hope you are enjoying your laser ;) ;) :D :D
