This 3-day online course will give current users of LucidShape an opportunity to learn in depth about some of LucidShape´s most powerful features.

This seminar does not teach the basics of LucidShape, but rather the usage of advanced features. It assumes the attendees have a reasonable familiarity with LucidShape. Attendees should already know how to enter lenses and reflectors, perform analyses, and optimize systems in LucidShape.
