The Core Module provides graphical 3D solid modeling functionality for creating and visualizing optical and opto-mechanical systems, including the capability to specify properties for materials and optical surfaces. Productivity-enhancing features include an intuitive user interface, libraries of task- and application-specific utilities and example systems, programming extensions for automating workflow, and photorealistic renderings of mechanical models.
The LightTools Core Module is a prerequisite for all other LightTools modules.
Enables designers to simulate and analyze light as it traverses the optical and mechanical components in a model. Includes state-of-the-art Monte Carlo ray tracing for accurate predictions of intensity, luminance, and illuminance throughout the model, as well as powerful illumination analysis capabilities.
Provides a set of specialized tools to enable fast, robust modeling of reflective and refractive freeform optics in both single-surface and segmented configurations for a diverse set of illumination applications.
Defines an imaging path based on sequential optical surfaces and perform lens analyses. The Imaging Path capability can be used directly in LightTools or in conjunction with CODE V.
Provide import and export capabilities for industry-standard CAD file formats, including IGES, STEP, SAT, CATIA V4 and V5, and Parasolid formats.
Distributes Monte Carlo ray tracing over multiple computers to speed simulations of complex optical models.
