Composite Ray Buffer – Scanner Example

This knowledge base article demonstrates how to use auxiliary ray buffers for the purpose of temporarily storing rays of interest in a system.  In this particular example, a ray bundle is scanned over a target using a rotating pentagonal reflector.  The goal of the simulation is to scan the reflector over a range of angles (performing a raytrace at each angle) and then display the ray intercept positions on the detector for ALL scan angles.
