We present the fabrication of a beam shaper with 32 levels for the generation of nondiffractive optical fields representing quasi-Bessel beams of order zero. This optical element is designed for visible light (λ=633 nm) and fabricated using standard photolithography and a fine calibrated reactive ion etching process. A large number of levels approximates a continuous conical surface so that the optical quality of the element is very good. It is investigated the possibility of generating perfect optical vortices with this class of optical elements.
