Just announced: LensMechanix for Creo Lighthouse Program for early adopters

Creo delivers the most scalable range of 3D CAD product development packages & tools in today’s market—and now you’ll be able to load optical systems from OpticStudio complete component data.

Just announced: LensMechanix for Creo Lighthouse Program for early adopters

You can be among the first to try the new LensMechanix for Creo application—the best way for mechanical engineers to package optical systems in Creo. By signing up for the Lighthouse Program, you’ll receive early access to LensMechanix for Creo builds for the duration of the program, with new versions released monthly until the end of Q2 2018. You’ll also be able to influence the feature set of the final release. Lighthouse Program participants will have access to LensMechanix for Creo at no cost for the duration of the Lighthouse Program, then get an exclusive discounted price on the final release.

LensMechanix for Creo lets you load all lenses, mirrors, sources, and detectors from OpticStudio as native Creo parts, without STEP, IGES, or STL files. Then start designing mechanical structures around optical components using complete component data. You’ll be able to catch and correct errors early, such as stray light, image contamination, and beam clipping.

How it works:

  1. Optical engineer designs optical system in OpticStudio

  2. Mechanical engineer loads the entire optical design into LensMechanix for Creo

  3. Mechanical engineer designs mechanical components around accurate optical data

  4. Mechanical engineer checks for issues caused by mechanical components

  5. Mechanical engineer updates the mechanical model (if needed) and finalizes it
