Thanks Mark for your useful response.

can I use this defined object in Sequential mode as well?

No, but you can use hybrid seq/nonseq mode to insert the part into an otherwise sequential system.

Thanks Mark for your quick response!

Hi all,

I have a scanning mirror like a galvo mirror in sequential mode. When I rotate it more than 45 degree to scan some angles, instead of having a reflection, the beam passes through the mirror. what is the reason behind this and how can I scan larger angles?

thanks,
