Hi,

Yes that should work, you need to use front silvered mirrors, its extremely fidlely to get the lasers to line up this way, i tried it with Porro prisms, (the type you get in binoculars) but they weren’t wide enough.

The laser shouldn’t be vastly effected by doing this, however when i did it with Porro’s i drilled holes the size of the laser module in the surface of the acrylic and sat the laser in the hole.

But with that mirrors you don’t have to cut a part of the acrylic. by the other hand, what do you recomend for the lens?  Focusable line with 120° or other angle?

120 deg is groovy! Nice and wide you get excellent coverage.
