Improve optical performance.
Shorten time to market.
UAVs now are being used to map pollutants in the sky and to track wildfires at a distance.
Turn your optical systems ideas into reality faster than ever with Zemax Virtual Prototyping—a software suite that accelerates optical product development. From aerospace and astronomy, to automotive, biomedical research, consumer electronics, and machine vision—companies are improving their optical product performance and reducing development costs at the same time.
TIME TO MARKET
By harnessing the power of OpticStudio and LensMechanix, optical and mechanical engineers can share complete design data and analyze optical performance in a virtual model, reducing design iterations and physical prototypes—saving time and money.
OpticStudio combines complex physics and interactive visuals so you can analyze, simulate, and optimize optics, lighting and illumination systems, and laser systems, all within tolerance specifications.
LensMechanix 4.0 is the most powerful tool available for optomechanical design. Design mechanical structures around lenses and analyze the impact on optical performance with this SOLIDWORKS Certified Gold Partner add-in.

Thousands of organizations use our software to develop cutting-edge optical products. Here’s what a few of them have to say.
"In time savings, we knocked this project out of the park. We had a fully functional physical prototype in the hands of marketing for evaluation three months ahead of schedule. We got to start working on the next design project early"
Robert Mentzer, Optical Engineer
Global Surgical Corporation
"By using OpticStudio and LensMechanix, we honed in very quickly on one design. We had a high-quality optical and mechanical design candidate in one week. We could then turn our attention to things like color, feel, and exterior cosmetics."
"The handoff from OpticStudio to LensMechanix is clearly superior. Not just for drawings and line work, it significantly sped up the mechanical design. I already had a mechanical head start by having all the optics locked in space. I did not have to redraw the lenses in SOLIDWORKS or pull data from the spec sheet."
Tim Stiefferman, Mechanical Engineer
