“An ESP32 project using two linear stepper motors and a burning laser diode. I came up with the project name from being a longtime fan of the homestarrunnerdotcom videos. Please don’t sue me.
The project started when I grabbed a few tiny linear stepper motors from Aliexpress link and wondered what I could do with them. They lack strength to cut material or draw using a pen but they should be able to hold dvd buring laser diode. A tiny adjustable lens from Aliexpress link was needed used to focus the burn height. Pulling out the visible diode component and replacing it with the dvd diode was surprisingly easy.”
