Cloud native EDA tools & pre-optimized hardware platforms
LucidShape CAA V5 Based is an interactive tool that allows designers to perform optical simulations and analyses of automotive lighting products within the CATIA V5 environment.
After a successful beta release in October 2016, we are pleased to announce that a commercial version of the product is now available. This commercial version enhances the LucidShape CAA V5 Based product’s capabilities with new features for constructing and optimizing light pipes, analyzing near-field illuminance and generating luminance images.
To build your automotive lighting model in LucidShape CAA V5 Based, you can use CATIA-generated geometry or import geometry created in LucidShape. You can then choose various sources and sensors; assign, create, and edit materials and media using a materials library; and define simulation settings and analysis preferences.
Model navigation and management is highly efficient with the software’s specification tree structure, which keeps all automotive lighting components organized and accessible from a single location. For example, products have a tree section that shows and allows the editing of all LucidShape-specific elements in an entire product assembly.
The software can rapidly and accurately ray trace part-level models or product-level assemblies using both tessellated and NURBS simulation methods, for the most comprehensive CATIA-based optical simulations currently available. You can run a simulation on one part while you continue to work on another part in the same project.
The software also supports multi-core processing and GPU ray tracing (for tessellated mode only) to further accelerate simulations.
The software delivers a comprehensive spectrum of UV data analysis tools, as well as bird’s eye and driver’s views. A large set of test point standards are included to ensure that your system meets both industry regulations and company specifications. Specific analysis tools include:
You can easily export your model to LucidShape to perform other tasks, including simulation and visualization of lit and unlit appearance.
This first commercial version of the product, LucidShape CAA V5 Based version 2017.03, offers the following additions to the software’s initial beta capabilities:
