LensMechanix 19.1 for Creo and SOLIDWORKS is available now

LensMechanix 19.1 for Creo and SOLIDWORKS is available now

Get an easier and faster way to go from design to manufacture with LensMechanix 19.1 for Creo and SOLIDWORKS users. It’s built to meet the needs of mechanical engineers that design housing for optical products—so you can access the complete design data of optical systems designed in OpticStudio.

With the new release, you can now generate ISO drawings of modified optical components. And you can load a wider range of OpticStudio objects into LensMechanix including the:

  • Binary 2A object that enables you to model an ideal diffractive element

  • Array object so you can get multiple instances of the same shape without having to model them individually

  • Boolean CAD object which can be used to form very general shapes by adding, subtracting, and intersecting other CAD objects

See the expanded list of supported components and surfaces. >

Using LensMechanix benefits optomechanical engineers in three ways:

  1. Maintain design fidelity
    Mechanical engineers access all the optical data defined by the optical engineer with just one file. There is no need to share STEP files, spreadsheets, or drawings.

  2. Shorten time to market
    LensMechanix saves time by reducing the iterations between optical and mechanical design that happen before getting to a final design. With less back and forth, teams can get designs to market faster.

  3. Reduce costs
    Mechanical engineers can easily see the impact of mechanical components on optical performance. This enables them to find any errors in the design before they build a physical prototype.

If you’re going to SOLIDWORKS World next week, stop by booth #707 for a demo or attend this presentation from Product Manager Isis Peguero on how to improve your optical product design process using LensMechanix.
