Peter Brier Old profile Eindhoven (NL) rev2 400steps/rev stepper motors,. External leadshine stepper motor drivers. 16x microstepping.
Jaap Vermaas Old profile
Bart Bakker Old profile Utrecht-NL rev2 HPC LS3020 operational will be available for sale in April, as I acquired a BRM 4030 to convert to LaOS
Jean-Claude Wippler Old profile Utrecht-NL (@David) HPC LS3020 operational w/ PWM inverted mounting to get Ethernet socket aligned with chassis hole
Martine de Wit / DUS architects Amsterdam-NL HPC LS3020 operational!
Lennart Herlaar rev 0.2 HPC LS3020 July 2012 power supply, flat cable operational DIY flat cable to JST adapter
Protospace Utrecht-NL SUDA operational LaOS-board installed and working
FabLab Amersfoort Amersfoort-NL Rev 3 HPC LS3020 operational, but with PWM issues. 1kOhm resistance to pwm, from exhaust on, config. Firmware: laoslaser-9-3-2013.bin
Fab Lab Potsdam Potsdam-DE rev 0.3 HPC LS3020 not operational
Kalle Pihlajasaari Old profile Johannesburg-ZA rev 0.4 kit on the way DW-40 perhaps parallel Moshi controller
& USB Newly controller
Combined 24V, 5V & HV PSU PCBs A 26x24 unit and a 52x43 unit with no tube, 2 spare PSU boards. Got MoshiDraw dongle, sw no fun, fixed motor wires, waiting on water and Z-lift for more testing, build log
Pieter Bos Meppel-NL rev 0.3 HPC LS3020 operational
Hugo Meiland, MakersCafe Leiden-NL rev 0.4 HPC LS3020 operational with PWM info and settings
Thomas Oster Aachen-DE operational
Darren Poulson Lancaster-UK rev4 K40-III operational All standard ebay kit, just the controller replaced. No wires to cut! 16x microstepping. Wiki pages created. Only thing not working so far is CUPS
parag0n @ Hackspace Manchester Manchester-UK rev2 K40-III Operational DIY FFC to JST adaptor, PWM, screen etc all working.
The Calver's from Cloud Pixies Isle Of Sheppy-UK rev4 K40-III Operational with PWM still needs a bit of work
Andreas, Fab Lab München Munich-DE rev 0.3 HPC LS3020 operational no PWM yet, no display
David Eickhoff, HPI Potsdam Potsdam-DE rev 0.4 HPC LS3020 operational no PWM yet

New forum and wiki members without LaOS lasers

[There is probably some way to get an automatic list of members but that will need a Redmine specialist, the current list is on the LAOS Laser project page.]

Proliferation of LaOS in the field

This table will give an idea of the growth of the project and general uptake. The operational numbers are estimates. Obviously a few of the earlier revisions may have been swapped out though (at least until rev 0.3) there have been no fundamental differences between them and field upgrades have been the norm. While the idea of an open laser controller has been in many minds for a long time it has taken until 2011 before this system got off the ground. Starting with just a small core group of developers the progress has been rapid and is spreading far and wide with increasing number of developers and user adoption.

[The production figures here are guesses based on blog entries with under reporting and not official as yet ]
