Thread: Is it possible to add the red laser outline preview to a CO2 galvo?

    Is it possible to add the red laser outline preview to a CO2 galvo?

    The title kind of explains it all. I'm curious to know if it's possible to add a red laser preview, like the ones you see in fiber lasers, to a CO2 galvo? It's not native to the system, so I don't think it's possible, but I figured someone here would know.

    I've seen videos of a few galvo co2 lasers and they all had the preview feature - which one did you see without it?
    I have done so much with so little for so long, that I can do almost anything with practically nothing...

    The Synrad FH flyer series. They're mainly used on production lines, but can be used for what we do as well. I found one used, in great shape at an industrial equipment auction. I'm concerned though because I'm spoiled on that option on my fiber. If I can add it, that would be great, but I imagine it involves installing something within the scan head.
