2015-01-07 (W) Arduino Laser Tag

A 3Doodler was on loan from Joe Robertson. The material he included was all ABS, the same material used to print the emitter tubes. The problem with the emitter tubes was a lack of a bezel to hold the lenses in place. The 3Doodler was used to "draw" bezels which firmly, maybe permanently, held the lenses in place. The larger 45mm lens was glass while the smaller 25mm lens was plastic. Both seemed to accept the procedure well. The completed emitters were installed into 1" (25mm) scope mounts and place on an Airsoft rifle to test the fit.
