Optical Simulation and Design Software

Modelling light propagation and its impact is crucial for measuring product performance and human comfort, perception and safety. Ansys Optics uniquely simulates a system’s optical performance and evaluates the final illumination effect, predicts and validates the impact of lighting and material variations on appearance and perceived quality all in real conditions. Visualise your product before it exists to deliver the ultimate virtual customer experience.

High Level Features

Let Ansys Optics & optical simulation software lead you to the best solution, no matter the style of your project. The software easily solves complex optical problems and refines visual appearance for perceived quality. Significantly elevate final product quality with true-to-life visual experiences and combine design and engineering processes into a single, connected workflow. Prepare and appraise virtual prototypes of a cockpit HMI in a real-time, immersive environment. Or, simulate for optical sensors on autonomous vehicles with the diversity offered by Ansys Optics.
