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 is the best application for mechanical engineers to package optical systems in CAD software. It is available for SOLIDWORKS users, and we have introduced an early adopter program for Creo users.

OpticStudio and LensMechanix are the tools of choice for scientists and engineers designing imaging optics and the mechanical packaging for devices such as telescopes, cameras, and sensors for the Mars rover, and two-photon microscopes for neurological imaging.
LASERS AND FIBERS
Laser and fiber technologies span a vast range of applications, from common household products to laser guidance systems, fluorescence imaging, fiber optic sensors, and laser materials processing.
LIGHTING AND ILLUMINATION
Producing uniform, or smoothly varying, illumination patterns from real light sources is critical in optical systems design. This type of lighting and illumination design is complex, since illumination sources tend to be nonuniform.
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."
