Burning with 1 Watt of Laser Power - Safety First
Before we start testing indoors with the Wicked Lasers S3 Arctic Spyder III 1 watt laser, let's take a second and see what kind of power we are working with. The above image was taken inside my photo box that was in a room void of white light. The laser not only lit up the box AND the room, but If you look closely at the image you will see that the laser reflects off of the wall of the photo box and shines a beam on the next surface. If you ever played the game Portal, you understand this effect, only this time that reflection can blind you.
In this image we left the laser in the same spot, but shielded the camera lens with the aggressive filter glasses. This reduced the lasers intensity and made it much easier to aim the beam to what we wanted to burn.
The first burn test is very simple; find the nearest thing that you have on hand and wouldn't mind putting a small hole in. I started with a game box.
This test is very easy to do; put a beam on it and let the laser do its thing.
After three minutes we had burnt through the outside clear plastic layer, the paper cover and even the main case.
We went through the main case as you can see here, and we're starting to go through the other side as well.
