Lambda Research Corp. showcased its new TracePro 7.0, the award winning non-sequential 3-D CAD raytracing program, at this year's SPIE Optics+Photonics.
TracePro 7.0 features an interactive optimizer, multithreaded algorithms and new re-arrangeable system tree. A seamlessly integrated suite of optical and opto-mechanical design tools includes a streamlined workflow and interoperability among other commercially available optical and mechanical design software tools. Optical and mechanical assemblies are designed, analyzed and toleranced in commercially available lens design software and 3-D mechanical design software.
TracePro sets itself apart from other optical and illumination design software solutions with its uniquely friendly and intuitive graphical user interface. Mechanical engineers and those skilled in 3-D CAD software experience the shortest learning curve with TracePro. TracePro is seamlessly interoperable with lens design software such as OSLO®, ZEMAX® and CODE V® and with CAD software such as SolidWorks®, AutoCAD®, Pro/E® and CATIA® via a series of file translators.
