The proof of concept module was hard to build. I used shims of 100 micrometers and a tweezer to set the height of the laser.  In the next module the build procedure is simplified so it is easier to scale the amount of single bundle transparent polygon scanners in the world from 1 to 10, and make a 10x improvement.
The procedure is as follows; set height laser, set horizontal position laser by first cylindrical lens, set height diode..  Other components still need to be added an whole system needs testing.
