#Laser cut optics bench

If you want to do optics experiments, you'll need a system to hold and aim the various components.

This project describes a set of simple optics holders that can be made from common hardware and pieces cut using your laser cutter.

Sources are DXF files that you can import and cut with most laser software.

Although inexpensive, the system can make variety of interesting and subtle optical setups, such as:

  • Measure the focal length of a lens
  • Project an image on a screen
  • A simple telescope
  • A simple microscope
  • Design and development of lens systems
  • A Michelson Interferometer
