Abstract: The Dual Imaging and Diffraction (DIAD) beamline X-ray source is a ten pole mini wiggler. By locating the mini wiggler in place of an existing sextupole magnet, the DIAD beamline is built at a bending magnet beamline position in Diamond. To accommodate the unusual beam trajectory, a new front end was designed for the DIAD beamline. The particular designs and specifications including an improved front end slits design, as well as the synchrotron and dipole ray tracing of the front end are presented in this paper. The development process of delivering the front end - the project challenges, approach and activities are also described along with the technical challenges.
