LensMechanix® for Creo is now available for early adopters. LensMechanix enables mechanical engineers to design mechanical packaging around accurate optical components and validate the impact on the optical performance directly in Creo.
With LensMechanix, mechanical engineers can load all lenses, mirrors, sources, and detectors from the OpticStudio® design file as native Creo parts, so they don’t have to spend time recreating the geometry of the optical components. Mechanical engineers can design the mechanical structure using the complete optical data, including materials, clear apertures, object types, lens equations, coatings, and tolerances. Running a ray trace through the complete optomechanical system helps identify the impact of the mechanical design on optical performance, so that stray light issues, such as image contamination and beam clipping, can be corrected before a physical prototype is made.
The LensMechanix Lighthouse Program for Creo gives users the opportunity to influence the feature set. As a member of the LensMechanix Lighthouse Program for Creo users, customers purchase their LensMechanix license at the early adopter subscription price and get access to frequent releases that include new features and improvements as a result of user feedback and requests. The frequent releases will continue until the full version is released later this year. Usage during the Lighthouse phase does not count against the annual subscription timeframe for a license.
LensMechanix combines the power of Zemax optical analysis with familiar mechanical design software. This enables mechanical, product, and systems engineers to simulate the optical performance at every stage of the design process, resolving errors before building physical prototypes. LensMechanix is available for SOLIDWORKS and a version for Creo is available for early adopters.
Zemax’s industry-leading optical product design software, OpticStudio and LensMechanix, helps optical and mechanical engineering teams turn their ideas into reality through Zemax Virtual Prototyping, which reduces design iterations and repeated prototypes, speeding time to market and reducing development costs. Zemax is headquartered in the Seattle area and has offices in the UK, Japan, Taiwan, and China.
