Paper Abstract

This presentation will include examples of folded optical designs developed using solid modeler tools from conceptual optical design through detailed implementation. A methodology allows control of critical solid models of the optical elements and complex housings. Specific examples will show how a prescription sheet controls all lenses, mirrors, and housings through parametric relationships. Establishing parametric controls allows the possibility of quick and certain implementation of prescription changes.
