A rapid forward Monte Carlo ray trace algorithm gives a prediction for the product's intended functions. LucidShape's Monte Carlo ray trace algorithm for reflector design is the fastest available. In addition, LucidShape offers an even faster ray tracing method called Light Mapping, as well as interactive ray tracing. Interactive ray tracing is a powerful tool to investigate the behavior of reflectors and lenses when visualizing light rays traveling through the scene. In LucidStudio, you can interactively "touch" the shapes and watch ray bundles come from a source and bounce via the touch point through the whole scene until they hit an absorber or launch to infinity.
A typical analysis of light data is the comparison between the computer predictions and measurements. LucidStudio also offers a huge number of test tables for regulation requirements, such as automotive lighting for ECE, SAE and JIS. LucidShape is as interactive as you wish. Add your own defined dialog interfaces for your design, simulation, analysis, and documentation. LucidShape meets your individual needs.
