Simplify optomechanical product development

Powerful software for mechanical engineers to collaborate with optical engineers.

Package, analyze, and validate mechanical designs directly in SOLIDWORKS.

A one-of-a-kind tool, LensMechanix® is a Certified Gold Partner SOLIDWORKS add-in that gives optomechanical engineers the tools to create mechanical geometry and then analyze its impact on optical performance.

LensMechanix helps you catch and correct errors early in the design process.

Load Files

Load both sequential and non-sequential designs into SOLIDWORKS as native SOLIDWORKS components, eliminating STEP, IGES, or STL files.

Display Tolerances

Display optical tolerance data in SOLIDWORKS to help you make informed decisions.

Animate Rays

Quickly identify the source of stray light or beam path infringement by showing light traveling through the optomechanical system.

Share Designs

Share entire assemblies with the optical engineer as ZAR files. This preserves all design data in native file formats and simplifies collaboration.
