  • Faster time-to-market
  • Analyse mechanical impact
  • Eliminate costly re-work
  • Optimise for manufacturing

What can OpticsBuilder do for you?

Design mechanical structures around optical components in minutes using the exact optical component data through convert and build into native CAD. Avoid errors and costly rework by using dynamic ray tracing in CAD to analyze the impact of mechanical components on optical integrity. Save time by automatically filling optical manufacturing data into CAD drawings pulled directly from Ansys Zemax OpticStudio.

Convert and build into CAD

Save hours spent recreating optics in CAD. Enable CAD users to automatically convert and build lens design data from OpticStudio, including lens materials, positions, sources, wavelengths, and detectors into native CAD parts and assemblies.

Analyse optomechanical packaging

Avoid surprises by catching and correcting errors during initial optomechanical product design. Easily run ray tracing in CAD to analyse how mechanical packaging impacts the optical performance.

Automatically create optical drawings

Share ISO 10110 compliant optical drawings with a push of a button using an automatic optical drawing design export tool that even works with your own custom drawing templates.
