More than a dozen modifications were made to improve usability in this release, including options for zooming in on a specific surface or object, to apply optical properties or align other components, for example. New layout options save the size and arrangement of your LightTools views, which enables you to restore a model with views positioned as they were when you closed it; you can also take a snapshot of a layout that can later be restored, which can be helpful when you share the model with a colleague as you collaborate on a design.
Improvements to the Utility Library
Improvements were made to the Light Guide Designer, Backlight Pattern Optimizer (BPO) utility, Parameter Analyzer, and Ray Path Analyzer, and the Surface Selection utility was added under Geometry utilities.
Enhancements to LightTools Libraries
Updates were made to the Example Model Library, the Materials Library, the Optical Properties Library, and the Glass Catalogs.
