LucidShape MacroFocal tools take into account the edge geometry of a light source to create a specific light distribution, which simplifies the process for generating complex light distributions such as low beams, fog lights, or individual light patterns.
The MacroFocal Freeform Design feature expands the toolset of the MacroFocal design capability by providing optical engineers with more granular control over the light spread across the entire facet. This reduces the need to subdivide facets into multiple rows of facets, which avoids increased stray light due to additional gap surfaces, reduced flux collection, metallization, or other tooling complications.
Join this talk to learn the basics of the MacroFocal Freeform Design feature. In simple and understandable examples, you will learn the differences between the conventional MacroFocal calculation algorithm and the Freeform Design feature.
