Lens Cost Estimator

New in OpticStudio 15

This revolutionary tool allows the optical designer to send lens design prescriptions to a manufacturer in XML format for real-time prototyping cost and fabrication estimates. Optimax is the first manufacturer to support the new OpticStudio 15 feature that connects to the Optimax Estimator web application. The new Lens Cost Estimator includes ISO 10110 XML Output to convey optical designs in a standardized format. Lens manufacturers can now read the data directly into estimating systems and potentially CNC and diamond turning equipment. The new Lens Cost Estimator along with sensitivity optimization and tolerancing are powerful tools in OpticStudio 15 that enable design engineers and manufacturers to achieve cost effective design solutions.
