Laser Cat @ Thingiverse

Laser Cat by Someone At MakerBot

Laser Cat created by MakerBot staff with Digitizer and shared on Thingiverse:

This porcelain cat was scanned with the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D scanner.

The original kitty suffered from a tragic lack of Lasers.

We corrected that.

Line Laser Diode – 5mW 650nm Red: You have some frickin’ sharks at your lair, and you’re thinking “it would be really great if I could attach some lasers to them” and then you see these little laser diode modules: what great timing! These encapsulated laser diodes are Class IIIa 5mW, with a 650nm red wavelength. They can be driven from 2.8V to 5.2V so they’re great for your embedded electronics project. This particular laser diode has a lens attached to turn the dot into a line. We think this would be particularly good for making a 3D scanner, but there are probably many other cool uses! Simply connect power to the red and black wires and you will be lasing in no time. The line beam spread is 120° – so from a distance of 5cm the line is 15cm long. The line fades out and doesn’t have a sharp cut-off. (read more)
