Paper Abstract

Many factors beyond the optimization of radii, thicknesses, and glasses are critical to the optical system design task if a practical system is to be produced. We review the common factors and some that may not have been so obvious. We relate some specific examples from our experience. The designer is encouraged to keep various factors in mind when designing for manufacture with the aim of making cost effective designs.
