LensMechanix for Creo

LensMechanix for Creo Parametric includes analysis features and workflow improvements.

 

  • Run a surface power analysis to view the power incident on a surface. Viewing the power on a mechanical surface can help you determine what changes to make in your design


 

  • Easily position the optical system within an existing mechanical assembly. Load your OpticStudio as a floating system to position it using references to other mechanical components.
 

 

  • Load a wider range of OpticStudio files into LensMechanix, including files that have the Compound lens, Boolean Native, Grid Sag, Source Two Angle, Source Object, Source Tube, Binary 2A, and Array.


See the LensMechanix for Creo release notes for more details.

 

LensMechanix for SOLIDWORKS

  • Experience performance improvements with large assemblies of up to 750 components. Loading times and assembly responsiveness has improved while working in these large assemblies.
  • Load a wider range of OpticStudio files into LensMechanix, including files that have the Compound lens, Boolean Native, Grid Sag, Binary 2A, Array, and Boolean CAD.
 
  • Create manufacturing drawings of lenses you’ve modified, such as lenses with chamfers and other customizations.
