Creating a Zemax Virtual Prototype with OpticStudio and LensMechanix

Creating a Zemax Virtual Prototype with OpticStudio and LensMechanix

Zemax Virtual Prototyping helps optical and mechanical engineers design, communicate, and collaborate on their optical products. This process enables engineers to flag potential problems early, thus reducing the number of prototype runs. Optical and mechanical engineers can create a complete model of a product and validate the effectiveness of the design.

Learn how to:

  • Optimize and analyze a sequential system in OpticStudio

  • Prepare a sequential design for conversion to non-sequential mode

  • Load a sequential design into SOLIDWORKS using LensMechanix

  • Package, analyze, and validate your complete optomechanical design

  • Open a completed LensMechanix design in OpticStudio

About the instructors:
Isis Peguero is an associate product manager for LensMechanix. She studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder. During her summers, she interned at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), where she designed the housing for small optical components for the largest solar telescope in the world, the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope.

Dr. Thomas Pickering is an associate product manager on the OpticStudio team. He received a PhD in Accelerator Physics from Royal Holloway, University of London. As a researcher with CERN, DESY, and Cornell University, Dr. Pickering focused on the development of particle beam profile monitors using laser wire systems, optical diffraction radiation, and optical transition radiation.
