How to Accelerate Your Tolerance Analysis | OpticStudio

June 15, 2016
OpticStudio provides highly flexible tolerance development and analysis capabilities. These tolerance capabilities incorporate the effects of manufacturing defects and alignment errors into an optical design. The tolerance analysis can be one of the most time consuming aspects of the design process, and may take longer than all of the other design stages combined! 

In this webinar, we will share strategies for accelerating your tolerance analysis. This includes how to make intelligent design choices and how a tolerance analysis evolves. We will also demonstrate how the following OpticStudio tolerance features reduce computation time: 
  • Paraxial Focus Compensation 
  • Tolerance Cache 
  • Polynomial Sensitivity

About the Presenter: 
Kristen Norton spent over 2 years working as a Lasers & Optics Engineer before joining Zemax as a Senior Optical Engineer in early 2014. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Physics from Willamette University in 2011, and MS in Applied Physics at the University of Oregon as a part of the Industrial Internship Master’s Program (Optics track). Known for her ability to tackle any problem, Kristen has quickly become recognized in the industry as an OpticStudio expert.
