For ease of use, I wanted something that could be easily attached and removed without the need to remove the router head. I have design a saddle that holds the Laserink head to the 611 router, only requiring one bolt to snug it up. Pics and stl provided.

I also added the circuit board to the electronics enclosure adjacent to the grbl motion controller.

This will be all changed out soon, waiting to get my drag chains in the post so I can finish that back side enclosure, below is the design I have made. Of note, it does not have any holes for wires yet as I am waiting to finalize those once I have the drag chains in place. This design has the fan side mounted with a removable filter - prob use a scotch brite pad (greenie). I'll also put a raspberry pi in there, mounting it on the bottom, and use one multipin mil style connector to feed at the 5, 12, and 24 volts.

This looks great.. Unfortunately I don't have a 3d printer.. I'll need to machine a bracket to hold the laser higher, I am not able to get it to focus on my material on my SO3.

How high above the material does the laser need to be to focus properly?

Thanks
C

So this past weekend when I was tightening the nut on the laserink saddle I made, I figured it would be better if one side had a stand off so that a wing nut or handle would be easier to use. This is what I came up with:
Laserink-Mount.PNG  I figured since I was in solidworks I should finish back electronics cover and some other stuff...
So I made a cat5 cover for when not using laserink:

And then some drag chain mounts:
Drag-Chain-Adapter-upper.PNG 
This is the 'upper' one that the y motor standoff presses into.

And the lower one:

Endstop / limit switches

The back cover:

The rocker switch was an after thought. I was going to have a switch in a control box for laserink power but then I thought that since I will be running power to the enclosure why not use it to power LED lights when the laserink is switched off? So how i wired the switch is "I" provides power to laserink, "O" provides power to LED strip lights.

This is just a short piece but as it is now, it runs the entire length of gantry.

I'll attach zip in next post with all stl's.

atrueresistance,
Once I get some off time, I would be willing to print the pieces for you - just cover shipping and a few bucks for plastic. Since I'm stationed in Japan it would take a few weeks and cost about 10 to ship out.
Let me know.

R,
Bob

We just got our formlabs form 2 printer and printed the mount off. Looks gorgeous. Picture soon! (It's in an alcohol bath at the moment).

If anyone is interested in one of these mounts I'll match the $65 objectworks price.
